These wild turkeys now have a new home.
Relocated to Montana, these turkeys will help boost the population.
Learn how the National Wild Turkey Federation and other groups have relocated these big birds to Montana.
Last year 91 turkeys were released in another area. It is hoped those birds and the newly transported turkeys will find each other and establish a good breeding population.
Game animal relocation projects such like this have allowed turkeys and other species to thrive in areas where they have not been found in many decades. Hats off to the men and women that have brought back the wild turkey to our forests and fields.
