MADISON – The Department of Natural Resources wishes to clarify the dates and season structures for the 2009 Fall Turkey Season.

The September 12 – November 19 Fall Turkey Season will take place in all 7 of Wisconsin’s turkey management zones.

A proposal to add an extended fall turkey season running November 30 to December 31 currently is under legislative review. If approved the

EXTENDED season would take place ONLY in turkey management units 1-5.

For additional information on 2009 Fall Turkey Seasons please refer to page 17 in the 2009 Wisconsin Small Game Hunting Regulations which

are also available online at http://dnr.wi.gov/org/land/wildlife/regs/.

Interesting, I don't know how many hunters would take advantage of turkeys in Dec but if they do it could be fairly easy pickings with an early winter/snow and food source available to hunt. Its a debatable move, especially with such large units. Unit 4, for example, has plenty of ag areas where the birds did pretty well through rough winter but also forest areas that took a hit. I just hope they don't go overboard with turkeys like they have with deer.

I don't believe the fall season will have much of an impact on populations, but you do have a good point there.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
