Turkey Hunting Property

Montana Turkey Hunting PropertyMontana wild turkeys are located in many areas of the state, but are primarily found in Southeastern Montana, and Central Montana. Wild turkeys in Montana prefer open ponderosa pine forest in rugged terrain, interspersed with grassland and brushy draws. Open ponderosa pine-grassland cover types are most widely used in the Longpine Hills during summer and early fall; canyon bottoms at lower elevations, grain fields and livestock feeding areas are utilized in late fall and winter. Nesting activities of wild turkeys are associated with the edge of deciduous trees and brush.

Montana falls outside the wild turkey’s ancestral range and it is not native to Montana. When the Montana Department of Fish and Game decided to introduce turkeys into Montana, it selected the Merriam’s as the best choice to achieve success. In 1954, department biologists introduced 13 Colorado birds into the Judith Mountains of central Montana. A second release was made in 1955 when 18 turkeys from Wyoming were released into the Long Pines area of southeastern Montana. Wyoming stock was also used in the Ashland area of southeastern Montana in 1956 and 1957 when 26 birds were released. This marked the last time stock from outside Montana was transplanted.

Wild turkeys in Montana have now become so prolific that they have become nuisances in many rural communities.
