Description: Habitat capability (HABCAP) models for wildlife assist land managers in predicting the consequences of their management decisions. Models must be tested and refined prior to using them in management planning. We tested the predicted patterns of habitat selection of the R2 HABCAP model using observed patterns of habitats selected by radio-marked Merriam’s turkey (Meleagris gallopavo merriami) in the Black Hills, South Dakota. Coefficients for winter required substantial revision, coefficients for summer were modified to a lesser extent. Coefficients are recommended for winter, summer, and poult habitats.

Keywords: Merriam’s turkeys, habitat, management, habitat models, Meleagris gallopavo merriami, Black Hills, South Dakota
