Title: 137Cs Body-Burden in Wild Turkeys at the Savannah River Site

Abstract

The Hunter Dose Tracking System (HDTS) [1], created by the Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) in support of wildlife hunts at the Savannah River Site (SRS), was used to measure 137Cs in turkeys harvested during hunts in April of 2017 and 2018 and a special hunt conducted by the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory (SREL) in late April and early May of 2018. The seventy turkeys shot during these five events were harvested from 27 of the 50 unique hunt compartments at SRS. These 27 hunt compartments cover more than 50% of the area of the site and include both clean and radiologically contaminated (such as the Pond B dam) areas.
