WHITECLAY, Neb. (AP) - More Nebraska wild turkeys are getting new homes in Montana.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission said in a news release Monday that Montana wildlife workers were in Crawford, Nebraska, last week to pick up 125 wild turkeys. The birds were captured Thursday on private property near Whiteclay in the northern Nebraska Panhandle.

The commission says there are plenty of turkeys in the Whiteclay area, but not so in the Great Falls area of Montana where the state is trying to establish a wild turkey population.

Last year Montana received 91 Nebraska turkeys.
