Turkey brood survey coming soon, view last year’s results

INDIANA – Across the state, turkeys are scouring Indiana’s woodlands and fields for insects with poults (turkey chicks) in tow.

During July and August, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources needs your help to count turkey broods and hens without poults to calculate the annual Wild Turkey Production Index (number of poults per adult hens).

The Production Index helps estimate wild turkey populations in the state and provides guidance for future management.

You can view the 2020 results for the turkey brood survey online. Mark your calendars for this year’s survey period, starting on July 1 and running through August 31.
