From the text ... 'The Pebble Hill Turkey Study, being conducted on Pebble Hill Plantation and surrounding properties, is a three-year project designed to monitor the effectiveness of spring burning as a means of providing quality brood range in the piney woods. We feel that by postponing burning of small scattered areas until mid- to late April the flush of new growth and inspect abundance will more closely coincide with the peak hatch of poults. Secondary objectives are to obtain as much information on life history, ecology, and management of turkeys on a regional level as possible during the course of the study. This project is a cooperative effort between Tall Timbers Research Station and the Alabama Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit. It is being funded by private individuals and the National Wild Turkey Federation.'
