The restoration of the wild turkey is one of the shining stories in the natural history of Massachusetts and one of the state’s most successful game management programs. Once plentiful, wild turkeys were virtually absent in Massachusetts in the early 1970s. Joe Judd’s presentation will show how the birds were reintroduced in Massachusetts, trapped and re-released around the state and how the future of the wild turkey will be protected. His presentation will illustrate the hatch-to-maturity life cycle of the bird. In addition, Judd will demonstrate several of his favorite turkey calls.

Joe Judd, three times president of the National Wild Turkey Federation, worked closely with former Governor William Weld to make the wild turkey our state game bird and to have November 18 proclaimed “Eastern Wild Turkey Day” in Massachusetts. His column “On The Ridge” has been published in Maine, Massachusetts, New York, and Vermont. His first book, On the Ridge: Stories from a New England Hunter, is due out this year.
