The DNR is looking for impute on revisions to the turkey management plan. Please put in your 2 cents! http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/WildlifeHabitat/turkeymanagement.html
My thoughts are that turkey hunting in wisconsin is way over priced.
A little comparison:
archery Deer license $24.00 and you receives a buck and 2 doe tags Gun Deer license $24.00 and your receive a buck and a doe tag Estimated deer population across the state 0.8-1.1 million animals That is 5 potential deer to be harvest in one year at a cost of $48.00 and you can hunt anywhere in the state.
Spring turkey application, permit and stamp cost $23.25 and you get 1 tag Fall turkey application, permit cost $18.00 and you get one tag. Over the counter tags cost $10.00 per tag. Estimated turkey population across the state to be 1 million birds. (and that is said to be down because of a couple hard winters) So for 5 potential turkeys in one year that would cost you $71.25 and your are restricted to one of 7 zones.
I don't feel that $24.00 would be out of line for two tags wether you fill both in the spring, one in the spring and one in the fall or 2 in the fall.
