    Habitat. Wild Turkeys live year-round in open forests with interspersed clearings in 49 states (excluding Alaska), parts of Mexico, and parts of southern Alberta, Ontario, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan, Canada. Turkeys in northeastern North America use mature oak-hickory forests and humid forests of red oak, beech, cherry, and white ash. Wild turkeys occupy ab square miles, mostly in southern Minnesota. Although the best wild turkey habitat is located in the oak-hickory covered hdlsides of southeast Minnesota, turkeys have been trapped and transplanted to unoccupied ranges selected by DNR wildlife managers.

    thought turkeys' needs included an abundance of water and little human disturbance. The fact that turkeys survived indiscriminate hunting only by finding refuge in large expanses of remote forest led biologists to promote this "ideal habitat" concept. Current thinking is that turkeys tolerate a greater variation in habitat than originally thought. Xtreme Hunts offers Spring Turkey Hunts on 8, acres of prime habitat, located in Southeastern Kansas Turkey Management Unit # 6 in Bourbon & Crawford counties. Note: Kansas Deer & Turkey hunting units are different but are still in the same hunting location. The Kansas turkey population has exploded over the last several years in southeast.

    Managing for Wild Turkeys For those of us truly consumed with the sport of turkey hunting, providing suitable habitat for the wild turkey rivals our passion for the sport itself. We have compiled information from the nation's top turkey managers on how to raise and hold more turkeys on your place. There have been CWD Management zones in northern Missouri Counties for years and there has been no move to limit these habitat management options. I suggest you continue striving to help the deer herd and other wildlife by providing the best habitat feasible.
