"I've been fall hunting with dogs for many years and was one of those responsible for legalizing dogs in Ohio in 2000.
I took one of my shorthairs from my shooting preserve, and trained her to bust turkeys.
Morgan is not much of a barker, but she gets the job done." Read the story about Morgy's Turkey

"I called these ten turkeys (below) with the kee kee run Marlin taught me on his paddle call.
He has the best explanation on his video tape (comes with each call) of any I've seen or heard.
Plus the video has some of the best turkey dog footage ever captured." Jon Freis

"We hunted the last nine days in Ohio and we killed nine turkeys.
My new John Byrne turkey dog puppy "Keekee" did an outstanding job.
So did old Morgan and she even barked a little more than normal.
Picture below with turkey dogs Morgan and Keekee, along with friends from
Pennsylvania and Georgia who joined us for an Ohio fall turkey hunt.
The Pennsylvania boys were surprised by what little people could get by with in Ohio, but the
Georgia boys thought Ohio's most northern Appalachian county was pretty high living." ;-) Marlin 10/17/05
