Minnesota DNR seeking public sightings of turkeys, pheasants to better gauge population trends

“We’re just trying to get a good idea of what that reproduction effort has looked like for the year,” said Nate Huck, Minnesota DNR resident game bird specialist. (Stock photo)

The Minnesota DNR has announced a new initiative that allows people to report sightings of turkeys and pheasants during the summer. The hope is for the DNR to use these reports to determine population trends and help with future regulations.
From May to October, citizens can go on the DNR website via their phone or computer to report a sighting of turkeys and pheasants. The reporting takes only a few minutes to complete.
