Reproductive parameters of eastern wild turkeys (Meleagris gallopavo silvestris ) were studied on a 52-km super(2) area in north Missouri. Nesting success averaging 37.8%. Few differences were detected between adult and subadult hens in nest success or hen success. Predation was the major cause of nest losses. Renesting rates averaged 55.0% in 1981, 1982, and 1985; but only 14.0% following a late spring in 1984. Both renesting rate and nesting chronology appeared to be affected by early spring temperatures.
