State Fish & Wildlife officials are looking to Vermonters to help them gauge how the wild turkey population is faring. Wild turkeys are found throughout most of Vermont and officials would appreciate “citizen scientists” reporting the location, number and size of turkey families they see this month. The turkey brood survey is on online at vtfishandwildlife.com. It will collect data on adult and young turkeys, called poults. Information from this survey will help wildlife biologists understand long-term trends in the wild turkey population, which factor into management decisions involving annual turkey hunting seasons, explained state wild turkey biologist Chris Bernier.
