Turkeys Thrive During a Snowless Winter

The growing wild turkey population in the Brainerd Lakes area has no problem with the recent cold.  DNR Youth Mentoring Coordinator Mike Kurre says this kind of weather is almost like heaven for them.  He says they need to scratch the forest floor for food. Heavy snow cover makes that difficult.  The opposite is true for grouse.

Kurre says wild turkeys have established well in the Nisswa and Mille Lacs area.  The hunting season begins the middle of April and continues through the end of May.  Kurre tells KLKS News, there are special opportunities for those under 18.
