This week, we sit down with two biologists, Mike Chamberlain and Bret Collier, to discuss wild turkey numbers and why they aren’t growing and may even be dropping.
Wild turkey reproduction is a complicated matter! We are going to find out today, the habitat and landscape usage are incredibly important to annual reproductive success. Wild turkeys need a specific habitat to nest and rear broods successfully. As both Mike and Bret confirm, diversity on the landscape is the driving factor for the success of the wild turkey.
