Fish and Game Department looking for turkey counters
CONCORD (AP) — See any turkey families lately? The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department wants to know about them.
The department is asking for the public's help in tracking wild turkey broods in the state this summer.
People who observe "broods," groups of young turkeys accompanied by a hen, are encouraged to report their sightings.
Last summer, participants reported seeing 724 broods totaling 4,646 turkeys. The average hatch date in 2014 was June 19.
Biologists are especially interested in getting more reports of turkey broods in the three northernmost New Hampshire counties, Coos, Carroll and Grafton.
