One of the greatest wildlife management success stories in the history of the United States is Turkey Restoration Project. In the mid 1800’s, turkeys had almost disappeared in New Jersey due to the habitat changes and killing for food. In the year 1977 22 birds were reintroduced in the wild establish their population across the state. Today the state wide population of wild turkey is estimated to be around 23,000 with an annual harvest of around 3,000 birds.
