DEC looking for wild turkey spotters

New York News

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is looking for people to participate in its 2021 Summer Wild Turkey Survey. The survey takes place throughout August.

Tracking of turkeys helps the DEC predict the growth of wild turkey populations and the potential fall harvest, they said.

“As New Yorkers continue to get outside this summer and reconnect with nature, we ask that they keep an eye out for the State’s most popular game bird, the wild turkey,” DEC Commissioner, Basil Seggos said.

Folks interested in participating can find more information about the turkey survey on the DEC’s website.
