Vermont Game Hunting

wild turkey hunting in vermont,vt hunting,wild turkeysThe return of the Wild Turkey is more than catchy saying, it represents a huge success in conservation. As the forests of Vermont and northern New England changed so did the size of Vermont’s wild turkey population. As Vermont became reforested the habitat for wild turkey improved and beginning in 1969 the Vermont Fish and Game Department obtained 17 wild turkeys from southwestern New York and freed them in Pawlet, Vermont. This liberation was just the beginning, as subsequent years brought more wild turkey releases. Today the flock numbers in excess of 30,000 birds. Ask us about Vermont Wildlife or share comments.
