I thought busting the flock just came natural. Laying still with those big old birds closing in is where the training is needed.

I tried it once in PA. As a flusher, my Boykin thought busting flocks was awesome. He scattered them with gusto. I did get him to lay down halfway decent too while we called, but we couldn't bring them back in. I don't know what would have happened if he actually saw them coming back in though.

I expect so, why I said “teach himself”

and yes,,,that sitting still with inbound turkeys is the hard part i expect - but we will have fun trying!
