Permits Issued for 2017 Spring Turkey Hunt

The 2017 spring turkey permit drawing has ended and over 135,300 successful applicants will receive spring wild turkey permits. The Department of Natural Resources says 240,768 permits have been made available for the spring turkey season, with the remaining permits being offered over-the-counter beginning March 20 with zone 1.

Starting this year, the spring turkey season will begin on the third Wednesday in April. A total of seven zones and Fort McCoy will be open for hunting.

The DNR says spring turkey permits are no longer available in any of the previous state park hunting zones following a 2014 rule change. While these permits have been eliminated, state parks will remain open for spring turkey hunting during select periods, and have been absorbed into surrounding turkey management zones.

Meanwhile, the 105,464 leftover permits for the spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning March 20.
