Yearly the PA Sport Fee conducts a statewide Wild Turkey Sighting Survey, July 1 to August 31, to gather information on the scale and make-up of our wild turkey inhabitants.

They ask for the general public’s assist to report what we see on the Turkey Brood Survey web site. It’s fairly simple to do.

  • Depend the turkeys you see and use the Survey web page to enter the information
    • File the situation the place you see them.
    • Depend “large” versus “little” birds — grownup vs juvenile.
    • File the intercourse for all adults, if potential. (Seek the advice of the Wild Turkey Poster.)
    • Don’t double rely. See the Survey web page for more information on this.
    • Give some fundamental contact data in case PGC has questions.
