New York State Conservationist;Oct2010, Vol. 65 Issue 2, Special section p3
The article traces the history of turkey in New York State. During the 1960s, wild turkeys are seen across New York States, but they were no longer seen by the mid-1800s. The state was cleared of forests by the late 1800s, but some farmland became overgrown with brush and trees, which made them suitable for wild turkeys. Around 1948, a small group of wild turkeys were observed to have moved into the state from northern Pennsylvania.
