Indiana Division of Fish and Wildlife Facebook: Thank you turkey brood reporters! With your help, we were able to obtain more than 5,100 turkey brood observations in Indiana. This will allow us to complete the first-ever regional analysis of turkey production by region. Observational data aligned very closely with available turkey habitat (forested areas shaded in green). Check out our maps below for a comparison!
