We’ve all heard stories of a great duck dog and the amazing retrievers they’ve made, or told a story or two about the hunting prowess of our favorite four-legged friend. But, a Turkey Dog? Most hunters probably haven’t heard of them or had the pleasure to hunt with one. Those who have know their value.
For the uninitiated, you’re probably wondering what makes a good turkey dog? Wide ranging, a great nose, plenty of stamina, highly vocal when scattering the game, but one that can sit perfectly still when the turkeys are coming in to the call.
If you live in one of the 29 states that allows hunting wild turkeys with dogs, or if you live close enough to travel to one, it is a great experience and well worth the investment in time and energy and a great way to enjoy your Mossberg shotgun.
