Evaluation of a Global Positioning System Backpack Transmitter for Wild Turkey Research

We tested a new GPS unit for turkeys to see if they would work, and then deployed some to evaluate how reliable they were and what quality data they could collect.  We found that they had about 20 yards of error, so locations were pretty accurate.  The units collected about 95% of the fixes they were supposed to take.  Our findings suggested that the GPS units had potential to provide reliable data, and this work was the precursor to many subsequent studies we did using that same technology which continues to improve.
