  1. Wild turkeys believed plentiful for spring hunt

    Indianapolis Star



    INDIANAPOLIS - State biologists believe wild turkeys gorged on cicadas last summer, and that could produce a record harvest this spring. More than 50,000 hunters are expected to kill about 11,500 turkeys during the hunting season from April 27 to May 15, said Steve Backs, a biologist for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. Larger broods of turkeys were seen last summer in areas with lots of cicadas, he said. The cicadas provided an easy food source for the young turkeys. During the spring season, hunters may shoot only male, or bearded, turkeys. Parts of several counties, however, have been declared off-limits to hunters to protect transplanted flocks of wild turkeys.
