The Indiana DNR would like your help locating and counting young turkeys.

Each summer, wildlife biologists and citizen scientists count the number of young wild turkeys (poults) with turkey hens in what are termed “brood surveys.”

These surveys provide the DNR with information about turkey poult survival and help staff determine how to best manage wild turkey.

This summer, our goal is to collect 3,000 brood observation reports from citizens across the state. The survey runs from July 1 to Aug. 31.
