TL;DR: Temperature and precipitation have been identified as factors that potentially influence eastern wild turkey reproduction, but robust analyses testing the relationship between weather parameters and turkey nest success are lacking, and projections of future nest success or daily nest survival suggest that nest success may increase as January precipitation increases and thatdaily nest survival may increaseAs temperature during incubation increases.
