A Framework for Decision Making Regarding Fall Wild Turkey Hunting Seasons in New York and Pennsylvania Using Structured Decision Making

Duration

April 2013 - March 2015

Narrative

We are developing a decision framework that evaluates optimal fall harvest management strategies relative to the achievement of ecological and social objectives. The project involves the development of wild turkey population models for predicting the effects of management actions as well as providing a decision framework that will be useful for other harvest-related decisions.
