Wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) hens were monitored by telemetry from January 1987 through August 1988 in Kemper County, Mississippi. Thirty-nine of 52 hens reached incubation. Nesting success was 46% in 1987 and 36% in 1988. In 1987, all 12 located nests were in loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) plantations. Eleven hens nested in 17- to 19-year-old plantations; I hen nested in a 9-year-old plantation. In 1988,21 located nests were in plantations and I hen was in a mature pine-hardwood forest. Most hens (81 %) nested in plantations age 13-20 years old. Plantations used for nesting had been commercially thinned an average of 4 years (3-6 years) and had been control burned an average of 3 years (1-7 years) before being used. Hens with 1- to 14-dayold poults used mostly plantations (81 %) 14-20 years old in both 1987 and 1988. These plantations had been thinned and burned 3-4 years prior.
