Forget sheep, count turkeys
CONCORD – If you see a flock of wild turkeys in New Hampshire this winter, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department wants you to report it via the online NH Wild Turkey Winter Flock Survey.
Report any turkey flocks seen through March 31 by filling out a simple electronic survey form posted on wildnh.com/turkeysurvey. Do not report multiple sightings of the same flock.
Turkeys are easy to see during the winter because they gather in large, highly visible flocks. The winter flock survey bolsters Fish and Game’s understanding of the abundance and distribution of turkeys during New Hampshire’s challenging winter months.
Participants are asked to report the number of turkeys in the flock; where they were seen; the type of habitat the birds were observed in; and what the turkeys were feeding on (acorns, beechnuts, seed at birdfeeders, corn silage, etc.).
The survey is designed to fill gaps in Fish and Game’s existing winter flock data collection efforts.
