Spatial Distribution of Potential Wild Turkey Nest Predators in West‐Central Louisiana

We used trail cameras to quantify the diversity and abundance of potential nest predators within known incubation ranges, the areas nesting hens were using while they were sitting on their nests.  We found that predators were more likely to be within these incubation ranges than in random places on the landscape, suggesting that many nest predators may use similar vegetation that hens nest in.  But it appears that whether a nest is successful or not may depend more on where the nest is relative to whether predators are using that area than the vegetation surrounding the nest.
