WGFD Turkey Habitat

WGFD Turkey Habitat


Project Dates: 15 August 2004 - 11 November 2004

Funding Sponsor: Wyoming Game and Fish Department

Principal Investigator: Ken Driese

Project Summary:

The National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) and the Wyoming Game and Fish Dept. (WGFD) are interested in mapping statewide habitat in Wyoming that is occupied by the Rio Grande Wild Turkey and the Merriam's Wild Turkey and by hybrids. WyGISC was funded to create such maps using information from WGFD Regional Offices. This project was completed in December 2004 and resulted in ArcGIS maps for each WGFD Region and for the state as a whole. These maps will be used to help manage current turkey populations and to identify areas for potential introduction of turkeys.
