MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife is asking the public for help monitoring turkey families in their communities.

Starting Aug. 1, people who see a group of young turkeys are asked to take the brood survey on the department’s website.

The survey asks people to record where, when and how many adult and young turkeys, or poults, they see.

“When combined with annual harvest data, information gathered from this survey helps to establish long-term trends in Vermont’s wild turkey population,” said Vermont Fish & Wildlife’s wild turkey biologist Chris Bernier. “It also helps us assess the impacts of spring and winter weather on the survival of poults and adult turkeys which is an important consideration in the management of turkeys.”
