Even after Thanksgiving, Vermont's wild turkey population is robust
Instead of buying a turkey at the store, many Vermonters hunt wild turkey to eat at Thanksgiving. In total, Vermonters harvest more than 140,000 servings of wild turkey meat every year. The state's wild turkey population is very healthy, but it wasn't always thus. A wildlife biologist joins Vermont Edition to discuss how the state's wild turkey population has changed over the decades.
Our guest is:
- Chris Bernier, wildlife biologist with Vermont Fish and Wildlife
