Turkeys were totally extirpated from WI. After many failed restocking attempts with hatchery turkeys. WI & MN made deals with states like MO & AR to trade ruffed grouse and geese for wild turkeys.
The question I've been wondering is? The more dominant birds seem to be closest to the winter grounds, so as a bird gets older and more dominant does he travel less?
The farther you get away from the wintering grounds the younger the birds seem to be. I would suspect that the jakes and younger 2 yo get pushed out farther than the older dominant birds do?
I have farms that have a couple of 2yo on them and a bunch of jakes, but if you go up the road a mile or so closer to their wintering area you'll find a bunch of ground dragging long beards and very few jakes if any?
From the MNDNR "In 1971 and 1973, 29 eastern wild turkeys, trapped in Missouri and released in Houston County
ICE,,,,,,,,it appears to me to be the worst type of weather for any wildlife
