Survival and Cause-Specific Mortality of Adult Female Eastern Wild Turkeys in a Bottomland Hardwood Forest

We studied survival and causes of mortality for hens in a bottomland hardwood forest in Louisiana.  Predation from coyotes and bobcats was the leading cause of mortality, and annual survival was 58% which appeared to be sustainable for this population.  We recommended that future work try to better figure out the links between survival and reproduction so as to inform managers given the regional declines being observed across the south and beyond.
