In 2015, the Alabama Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit at Auburn University and the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR), began the most comprehensive and long-term study of eastern wild turkey populations ever conducted in the state. With support provided by ADCNR, through Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration, Auburn University, and U.S. Geological Survey. For the next 5 years, Alabama Unit staff and graduate students will be capturing and marking turkeys with radio- transmitters and leg bands to measure movement, survival and production rates on three study areas. The landscapes chosen for study are the hardwood forests and fertile valleys around J.D. Martin Skyline WMA, the rugged mixed-pine hardwood forests in an around Oakmulgee WMA, and the managed pine forests surrounding Barbour WMA.
