MDWFP Releases Wild Turkey Management Plan10/9/2017 8:42:34 AM
To address the ever-changing needs of the state's wild turkey flock, the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) recently completed development of a Comprehensive Wild Turkey Management Plan. This 42-page document is the first all-inclusive roadmap for the statewide management of the Mississippi's premier game bird. The plan reviews past major conservation actions, evaluates the current status of turkeys and turkey hunting, uses scientific studies and expert opinions to gauge the bird's primary limiting factors, and outlines strategies and actions necessary to better manage the state's flock.
All hunters are encouraged to review the plan. A digital copy is available for download HERE or by visiting the MDWFP Wild Turkey Program webpage at www.mdwfp.com/turkey.
Comments on the plan are welcome and can be sent to Adam Butler, the MDWFP Wild Turkey Program Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
