NC Wildlife and Wild Turkeys

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is seeking public assistance in reporting observations of wild turkeys this summer. Through Aug. 31, wild turkey sightings by volunteers and Commission staff will be recorded and submitted to management biologists. Observation information will help the Commission manage the state’s turkey population.  To participate, new volunteers should use this online survey link at NCWildlife.org.  For the first time this season, participants can enter their observations online in the field from any smart phone or small-screen device. Before the 1970s, wild turkeys were scarce in North Carolina, with only about 2,000 birds statewide. Today, there are more than 265,000 birds from the mountains to the coast, and wild turkeys are one of North Carolina’s most popular game animals.
