Restoring a Grand Old Bird to North Carolina Wildlands

Record #:
Overhunting and increasing human population brought about the decline of the wild turkey across the country from millions to around 30,000 at the start of the 20th-century. The National Wild Turkey Federation sponsors Target 2000, a project that seeks to restore the wild turkey nationwide by the year 2000. By April, 1999, the state's wild turkey population will reach 100,000, with habitats in all 100 counties.
