State DEC Wants to Know if You See Wild Turkeys
By Jason Smith
Oswego, NY – People who see wild turkeys roaming around on the side of the road or in the woods are being asked to report their sighting to the state Department of Environmental Conservation.
A DEC spokeswoman says the sightings help them estimate the number of turkeys in the state and to set policies on hunting. Over the last 3 years, the DEC received more than 1500 reports from every county in the state.
The DEC estimates that there are more than 300,000 birds in the state. Turkeys were hunted to extinction in New York in the 1840's.
