Gobble, Gobble! NH Fish & Game Want to Know If You See Wild Turkey Flocks

The New Hampshire Fish & Game Department want to know if you see any wild turkey flocks from January through March 31.
CONCORD, N.H. - The New Hampshire Fish & Game Department want to know if you see any wild turkey flocks from January through March 31.

A press release says the New Hampshire Wild Turkey Winter Survey is designed to fill gaps in the department's existing winter flock data collection efforts.

"This reporting system allows the public to contribute important information to our understanding of winter turkey status in an inexpensive, efficient and, hopefully, enjoyable way,” said Ted Walski, Turkey Project Leader at Fish and Game.

The Fish and Game Department says participants should report the number of turkeys in the flock, where they were seen, the type of habitat the birds were observed in, and what the turkeys were feeding on (acorns, beechnuts, seed at bird feeders, corn silage, etc.).

Last winter, people responding to the survey reported seeing 1,787 flocks and more than 28,389 turkeys.

To report turkey flocks visit the New Hampshire Fish and Game website wildnh.com.
