Agenda
Synthesis of recently completed, ongoing, and planned research related to eastern wild turkeys

While long heralded as one of North American conservation’s greatest successes, the Eastern wild turkey (Meleagirs gallopavo silvestris) and its management appears to be at a turning point. Most states encompassing the Southeast Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (SEAFWA) have documented recent declines in turkey population productivity and harvest. To address concerns associated with the trends, nearly five dozen different research projects have been undertaken throughout the SEAFWA geography in the past decade to increase understanding of wild turkey ecology and management.
