Wild Turkey Populations Continue Upward

Record #:
Good nesting conditions over several years and the opening of five new hunting areas create the possibility for another record wild turkey harvest in 2001. In 2000, hunters killed 6,827 wild turkeys, which was a new North Carolina state record. So well has the turkey population increased that in fifteen of the last seventeen years, a state hunting record has been set.
