Report Your Turkey Sightings this August!

While exploring the forests and fields or driving through the state’s beautiful landscapes this summer, keep an eye out for wild turkeys.

Reported observations of wild turkeys are used to track changes in abundance and productivity (number of poults produced per adult hen) over time and in different parts of the state. It also helps forecast hunting prospects for the coming fall season and for subsequent spring seasons.

Forms can be downloaded from DEC website, or submit your observations online.
