The public attitudes survey is an addendum to the 2012 Summer Turkey Brood survey and is optional. Participants who fill out the public attitudes survey can enter a drawing to win one of two prints titled “Mother’s Work Is Never Done,” which features a turkey hen and her chicks. The numbered and signed prints were donated by New Hampshire wildlife artist Jim Collins, designer of the New Hampshire Conservation License Plate (moose plate) and several migratory waterfowl stamps.
Fish and Game appreciates all turkey brood observations reported by volunteers, as the information helps greatly in determining how successful turkey nesting was for the year, and also helps in determining the distribution and abundance of wild turkeys throughout the state.
The reporting period runs until Aug. 31 and results will be posted on the Fish and Game website this fall. To report your turkey brood observations, go to wildnh.com/turkeybroodsurvey.
Wildlife research and management in New Hampshire is funded in part by Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration, a user-pay, user-benefit program supported by the purchase of fishing tackle, firearms, ammunition, archery equipment and motorboat fuels.
