Turkey Distribution

The wild turkey was extirpated from Nebraska by about 1915. The modern history of wild turkeys in Nebraska began with releases in 1959. The population prospered, especially in the Merriams subspecies and hybrid birds, and the turkey's range now includes most major river drainages and the pine ridge. Small, isolated populations are found in appropriate habitat outside the primary range.
