The population of turkeys in Western NY has declined in the last 5 to 10 years, and the state DEC wants to find out why. So, it's holding a four-year study that will estimate the survival rates of wild female turkeys, or hens. The NY DEC is asking landowners to help in the program that will help save the wild turkey. Regional Wildlife Manager Mike Wasilco says there are different ways folks can help.
