Nashville, TENNESSEE – According to the state officials, the new public survey is launching this year and will be an annual opportunity.
Officials also said that this survey is currently underway and will continue through Aug 31.
Agency staff and cooperators have conducted this survey annually since the 1980s and TWRA now seeks to include the public.
Participants will have an opportunity to help the TWRA monitor the state’s wild turkey population by reporting wild turkey sightings.
Roger Shields TWRA Wild Turkey Program Coordinator said:
“This project is very important as we monitor our turkey population and gauge its annual productivity. The website will provide an explanation of why we conduct the survey, an ID tutorial with a quiz to test folks knowledge of turkey ID, and the actual forms to submit observations.”
