Due to the rapid decline of Turkeys in the state, the Kansas Wildlife and Parks department has decided to suspend Turkey hunting this season. This decision comes after 15 years of a decline in Turkey populations in the region. While Turkey hunting is not as popular or As common during the fall season, wildlife biologists still feel that this decision was important. This decision has been one of many attempts to try to protect and conserve the Turkey population over the years.

The turkey population has been threatened by hunting seasons across the nation. This decision will allow the turkey population time to recover to make hunting these animals safe again. Once the population dwindles , the likelihood of the turkeys being able to recover becomes more difficult.

Hello!! I am Olivia Tarvin and this will be my second year on staff! I am on the Senior Ads team and I couldn’t be more excited for the year to come! I chose SPUB because I love to write, design, and educate the student body on things they may not know about! I am so excited to design more this year and create the Senior Ads! Journalism means so much to me because it not only gives me an outlet to write, but it also can be such a good place to learn more about the world, the community and even the school! When I’m not writing a story, designing, or playing with the band, you’ll probably find me outside watching the sunsets/sunrises, kayaking, fishing, camping, or just hanging out with the people I love most!
