Both were important as food for Native Americans and European settlers. And both were nearly obliterated.<p>There were a couple of reasons for the turkey's decline. In the early years of the U.S., there was no regulation, so people could shoot as many turkeys as they liked. And their forest habitat was cut down for farmland and heating fuel. Without trees, turkeys have nowhere to roost. So they began to disappear.<p>By the early 1900s, there were only about 30,000 wild turkeys left in the whole country.
