I have done it both ways. If your going to split up you needs several hundred acres of land which work good on a large hunting club. On the other hand I had good luck working together as a team on a tough bird.

Good question.  Lots to think about.  How big an area - 40 acres, 250 acres, 1000 acres? Woods or field setup?  Are both hunters callers?  Decoys or not? Ground blind, built blind, or no blind. Wind or no wind?

I think hunting with a friend can be a great time.  If I am in the woods, I would either sit back to back in order to cover more ground visually (eliminates silent walk in gobblers), or I would put the shooter in between the decoys and the caller with the caller being 60 to 70 yards from the decoys. If I am hunting a field, I would sit side by side 10 yards or so into the cover around the field.  In both cases, I would have some type of cover involved making certain that the birds can't see "through the cover". If it is windy, communication can be hard, so you must take that into consideration when setting up.

That's my two cents.

always together

BINGO!!!   if a situation arises where the birds ain't ackin right then we will split up on the green fields in the evenings close to roost, but by alll means we hunt together. Too much can happen once split up and trying to get a bird, especially if a bird gobbles inbetween two people. 
You end up with a whole lot of callin from both directions on the turkey
Hunting is a way of life: Love it, Teach it, Live it. But most of all.... RESPECT IT and pass it on!

Hunt together its way better to share the experience and if it gets slow you got someone to chat with too. To much can go wrong when you split up.

Can't say, red.  I always hunt alone.   :'(   I'd rather hunt together if I was going with another hunter, though.
