TANNER, Ala. (WHNT) - Calling all turkey hunters.
The Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division (WFF) wants to hear from you.
The WFF is asking hunters who spend 10 or more days turkey hunting each spring in Alabama to take part in the Avid Turkey Hunter Survey.
The survey gives WFF biologists information on trends that help the division better manage the state's turkey population.
Interested hunters are asked to contact Steve Barnett at firstname.lastname@example.org or Joel Glover at email@example.com.
You can also call the WFF at (334) 242-3469.
WWF Biologist Matt Brock says the survey isn't time consuming or laborious. Questions cover where and when the hunt took place and what the hunter noted while in the field.
"How many turkeys did you hear? How many gobbles total did you hear? How many hens did you see?"
"It's just very useful information for us to help manage the resource," Brock says.
Each participating hunter will receive a copy of Full Fans & Sharp Spurs and will be automatically entered in a drawing to win a new shotgun that's been donated.
