What Hard Science Tells Us About Wild Turkey Populations

Last week we spoke with the man who was in charge of the restocking efforts of the the wild turkey across North America. This week, we sit down with two biologists Mike Chamberlin and Brett Collier to discuss wild turkey numbers and why they are plateauing or even dropping. 

Wild turkey reproduction is a complicated matter, but as we find out today, habitat and landscape usage is incredible important to annual reproductive success. Wild turkeys need specific habitat requires to nest and rear broods successfully. As both Mike and Brett confirm, diversity on the landscape is the necessary and driving factor for continued success of the wild turkey. 

Take this information to heart and share with your fellow turkey hunters! We have to keep sharing solid information regarding true habitat management. Please share and enjoy a successful turkey hunt this spring.
