Poult-he couts hve ee used to idex popultio desities, reproductio, d recruitmet of upld gme irds such s ester wild turkey (M. g. silvestris; Brtush et l. 1985), Rio Grde wild turkey (DeArmet 1959, Schwerter et l. ), Merrim s wild turkey (M. g. merrimi; Hoffm 1962, Shw 1973), rig-ecked phest (Phsius colchicus; Riley d Riley 1999), d gry prtridge (Prdix prdix; Suchy et l. 1991). Wild turkey poulthe couts hve ee used y my stte turl resource gecies (Kurzejeski d Vgilder 1992) d my reserchers hve exmied spects of poult-he couts. For exmple, the effects of evirometl coditios d time of dy o poult-he couts were exmied for phests (McClure 1945, Kozicky 1952, Klogl 1955) d wild turkeys (Shw 1973, Brtush et l. 1985). The power to detect treds i poult-he couts ws exmied for phests (Rice ) d wild turkeys (Schultz d McDowell 1957, Schwerter et l. ). I dditio, the reltioship etwee hrvest d poult-he couts ws exmied for wild turkeys (Kemer et l. 1975, Wuz d Shope 1980, Wuz d Ross 1990) d phests (Rice ). My of these studies reported positive reltioship etwee poults/he estimtes d wild turkey hrvest i the fll (e.g., Mezel 1975, Wuz d Shope 1980). These reltioships were used to ifer tht poults/he is vlid idex of recruitmet d desity eve though there is limited iformtio regrdig such reltioship. I Texs, TPWD persoel hve ee coductig poult-he couts s idex of recruitmet i Rio Grde wild turkey popultios sice 1978 (TPWD, upulished dt). However, the vlidity of poults/ he estimtes s idex of popultio prmeters ws questioed y Cughley (1974). The ssumptio ws tht poult-he couts were surrogte for popultio udce or desity (e.g., Brtush et l. 1985, Roerts d Porter 1996, Hely d Powell 1999). However, o studies exmied the vlidity of usig poult-he cout dt to idex recruitmet, reproductio, or desity though some coducted power lyses for tred detectio (e.g., Schultz d Mc- Dowell 1957, Schwerter et l. ). Thus, our ojective ws to evlute poult-he couts s idex of reproductio d recruitmet. Specificlly, we were iterested i determiig if positive lier reltioship etwee poults/he estimtes d mesures 1 E-mil: of reproductio d recruitmet existed t locl d ecoregio scles.

Also, we selected the study sites ecuse they represeted the rge of evirometl d thropogeic iflueces i the ecoregio. Wild turkey popultios t our study sites were primrily tied to roostig hitt ssocited with ripri commuities.

Primrily, ech protocol differed i smplig gols; the TPWD protocol focused o hes ut the TTU protocol focused o flocks. Flocks, the smple uits, were idepedet groups of wild turkeys; flock could e 1 or more wild turkeys. Regrdless of survey protocol, the smplig uits were wild turkey flocks d oservers recorded the sex, ge, d umer of wild turkeys see i ech flock. However, ecuse the TPWD protocol ws focused o hes, 1 flock of 25 hes fulfilled the TPWD quot ut ws cosidered oly 1 smple uder the TTU protocol.

RESULTS At the locl (study site) scle, the TPWD poults/ he estimtes were poults/he ( SE) lrger th the TTU poults/he estimtes (t 3.557, df 6, P 0.012).

However, t the Phdle Rollig Plis ecoregio scle, there ws reduced vritio mog yers. The TPWD poults/he estimtes for the ecoregio rged from poults/he (Tle 1). For the reproductive mesures, estig success rte rged from % (Tle 3), me umer of eggs lid per he rged from (Tle 4), d me umer of eggs htched per he rged from (Tle 5).

Thus, more effort must e pplied if the TPWD poults/he estimte is to e vlule t locl or ecoregio scles. For exmple, the TTU smple size verged flocks per study site per yer. Also, the results of Schwerter et l. () suggested coductig 200 poult-he couts per ecoregio per yer ws ecessry to detect (80% power) iter-ul chge of 10 20%. Additiolly, ueve d idequte coverge of smples cross the Phdle Rollig Plis ecoregio my hve cotriuted to the iility of the TPWD poults/he estimtes to predict reproductio or recruitmet o our study sites or the ecoregio. Durig the period of study, TPWD persoel coducted poult-he couts i ech couty of the ecoregio per yer. Typiclly, TPWD persoel coducted poult-he couts i couties of the Phdle Rollig Plis ecoregio d i oly 3 of those couties were poult-he couts coducted every yer. The ueve distriutio d icosistecies i the TPWD poult-he coutig effort my hve cotriuted to the lck of cocordce with reproductio d recruitmet. The TTU poults/he estimte exhiited lier reltioship with my mesures of reproductio d recruitmet t the locl scle. This idicted poulthe couts c e used s surrogte for reproductio d recruitmet t locl scles. However, oly out 35 45% of the vritio i mesures of reproductio ws explied y the poults/he estimtes (Figure 2). The ility to expli this mout of vritio i reproductio is importt i wild turkey popultios tht re iflueced y my ecologicl forces. However, from mgemet perspective, this my lck vlue s iformtiol tool. Though mesures of recruitmet were idices, out 52 62% of vritio i the recruitmet idices ws explied y poults/he estimtes (Figure 2). This could e vlule iformtio for wildlife mgers. However, without desity estimtes, idex of recruitmet my e of little vlue to mgers (e.g., McDold 1964). Also, Cughley (1974) suggested ge-rtio treds c pper ideticl for 2 popultios, oe irruptig d the other crshig. Thus, we suggest estlishmet of survey routes with strict survey protocol tht provides for rdomiztio d cotrols effort.
