The Department of Conservation wants to know how many turkeys are on hand in New York State – and it wants your help counting them.
The state agency conducts its Summer Wild Turkey Sighting Survey annually.
The state says the survey helps it determine what the fall turkey harvest will look like.
To help participate, log on to the DEC’s website, DEC.ny.gov.
The agency has shortened the turkey hunting season this year due to a decline in turkey populations.
