Colorado Parks and Wildlife focuses this episode of Livin’ the Wildlife on the wild turkey. Colorado is home to two subspecies of wild turkeys, the Merriam’s and the Rio Grande. The native Merriam’s turkeys live in the foothills and mountains west of I-25, and the Rio Grand turkeys were introduced to river corridors on Colorado’s eastern plains in the 1980s. To rebuild populations, Colorado Parks and Wildlife launched an aggressive trap and transfer program. In working with the NWTF, CPW relocated and reintroduced thousands of turkeys across the state. Today, the state is home to more than 40,000 birds, the largest population ever in the state’s history.

Jeremiah is an organic meat harvester. He does not hunt for a trophy as his prize. He hunts for the joy of knowing where his food comes from. And, his goal is to teach others that the meat we put on the table can look great and taste even greater.
