Hunting this species can be the most exciting and challenging fowl hunting available. Beginning in the spring, when male birds attempt to attract their mates with proud displays of strutting and calling, the challenge is the greatest.

Wild turkeys are a relatively recent reintroduction into Ontario’s wildlife system. Conservations and wildlife experts work with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, the Ontario Federation of Hunters and Anglers and the National Wild Turkey Federation to help the species integrate and thrive.
Measures of selective harvesting and hunter education have since proven fruitful: according to wildlife management experts, our provincial population of wild turkey is now plentiful in the Southern Ontario region.
