Minnesota DNR Trapping And Transplanting Wild Turkeys
« on: February 17, 2004, 07:08:16 AM »
WINONA, MN—The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has started a program in which it will trap approximately 70 wild turkeys in the southeastern part of the state for transplant in the state's Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge, Morrison County and the Snake River State Forest. The DNR says more birds might be trapped and transplanted elsewhere.

As of January 29, 26 hens had been trapped and released as part of the program. All trapped birds will be equipped with radio transmitters so they can be monitored for movement and mortality by a graduate student working with the DNR and a local university.

The DNR says after the initial 70 birds are trapped and released in the study areas, efforts will be made to capture birds for release in areas of Minnesota's Kandiyohi, Norman, Todd, Swift, Big Stone, Otter Tail and Watonwan counties. These birds, however, won't be part of the research project.

The Minnesota Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation and the DNR Section of Wildlife are providing funding for the trapping and transplanting program.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
