Ideally a turkey dog should cast ahead, check back to your position, and find flocks. When it locates birds -- either by foot, airborne scent, visual contact, or all three -- the dog should run at the birds, bark to declare the flock's position, then chase down singles, and lingering turkeys into the air. After the flush, the dog should consent to blind time as you call birds back. Concealed in a camouflage bag (a John Byrne innovation) or behind blind material or both, the dog should rest calmly as turkeys approach your position. Trying to hide the dog in the blind from the wary eyes of regrouping turkeys sometimes offsets the flushing advantage. That's part of the challenge.
