So it goes with wildlife, there has been a slight complication with the turkey release that was going to take place this weekend: the turkeys aren’t there any more!
Apparently, they have stopped visiting the bait site. Therefore, we cannot catch and release turkeys this weekend. Biologists will be setting up a couple more bait sites, in new locations, to plan for a catch in mid-February.
So what does this mean for you?
Well, if you already submitted a registration for the release this weekend, you will remain in the system. You do not need to do anything additional at this time. If you did not submit a registration because you could not make it this weekend but are still interested in participating, you can register now. I will continue taking registrations for the next few weeks or until the projected spots are filled. Once a date is determined, those people that have registered will be provided more information. At that time, if the day does not work for you, we can substitute other people on the waiting list.
This will probably be the last turkey release program offered for a while. We tend to trap them in the winter and I don’t think any more are planned after this.
