Abstract:

Overview: A National Wild Turkey Federation and U.S. Forest Service book. Standard reference for all subspecies. Extensive, new information on all aspects of wild turkey ecology and management. The standard reference for all subspecies--Eastern, Gould's, Merriam's, Florida and Rio Grande--The Wild Turkey summarizes the new technologies and studies leading to better understanding and management. Synthesizing the work of all current experts, The Wild Turkey presents extensive, new data on restoration techniques; population influences and management; physical characteristics and behavior; habitat use by season, sex, and age; historic and seasonal ranges and habitat types; and nesting ecology. The book is designed to further the already incredible comeback of America's wild turkey.
