Greetings, wild turkey hunters! BIG changes for the 2011 fall turkey season are here!!
Wisconsin's 2011 fall turkey season opens this Saturday, September 17th, and hunters are reminded of two important changes that will impact the fall hunt:
1. Hunters must register their turkey online or by phone: hunters will no longer be able to register their turkey at a local registration station. Visit the Wild Turkey Harvest Registration website for more information: http://dnr.wi.gov/org/land/
2. The permanent extension to the fall season in Zones 1 through 5 has been approved. In 2011, this season extension will run from November 28th through December 31st for Turkey Management Zones 1-5 ONLY.
For more information on both of these topics, please see this week's DNR Weekly News at http://dnr.wi.gov/news/
Call in registration, no more dragging the turkey to a tag station. What a great idea.
Guess it took Scott Walker in choosing Cathy Stepp as head of the WDNR to get changes done.
