Kate Lochte speaks with LBL Wildlife Technician Curtis Fowler about the wild turkey. Fowler explains the hard life of a turkey, times when turkeys were scarce in the US and when reintroduction took place, also a turkey's ability to fly and when you might see one airborne.
As we move into fall it’s a good time to hear about the environment of the Elk & Bison Prairie and what the animals are doing now. We visit with Land Between the Lakes Wildlife Technician Curtis Fowler for an update on the animals in the preserve. The 700-acre enclosure is home to elk, bison, and several other animals with free-roaming access. Visitors can enjoy the area on a 3.5-mile loop road, with interpretive spots along the way to learn more about their ecosystem. Click here for more about the Elk & Bison Prairie.
