Turkey Survey

STATEWIDE–The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is trying to learn more about the turkey population across the state and they could use your help. They are asking volunteers to conduct brood surveys from July 1 through August 31. Those surveys count the number of young wild turkeys observed with turkey hens to estimate how many young turkeys live through the summer. Summer brood survival is one of the primary factors that play a role in the turkey population. The Department would like to collect 3,000 brood observation reports across the state with a goal of at least 25 observations per county.
