Wild Turkey Restoration Project
The return of the wild turkey to West Virginia is one of the greatest wildlife management success stories in the history of the Division of Natural Resources. The wild turkey transplant program was instrumental in reestablishing our most popular game bird throughout the state. By the completion of the program in 1989, more than 2,000 wild turkeys were released and resulted in the reestablishment of wild turkey populations in 39 counties. Presently, approximately 140,000 wild turkeys are now distributed throughout all 55 counties.
