Fall Turkey Season Extended.

Fall turkey season to be extended in five turkey management zones

MADISON – Wisconsin’s fall turkey hunting season will be extended in five turkey management zones this fall, under a two-year trial period that has passed legislative review. Turkey hunters in zones 1 through 5 will be able to take advantage of the late season this year.

The regular fall turkey hunting seasons this year runs from Sept. 12 through Nov. 19 in all seven turkey hunting zones. The extended season starts Nov. 30, the Monday following the November gun deer hunt, and runs through Dec. 31 in zones 1 through 5 only. There is no extended season in zones 6 and 7 in northern Wisconsin. The extension does not appear in the printed hunting regulations because it was approved after publication deadlines.

“We are pleased to offer this additional opportunity to our hunters,” said Department of Natural Resources Secretary Matt Frank. “The reestablishment of wild turkeys in Wisconsin is a wildlife success story, and both the spring and fall turkey hunts have become tremendously popular. Turkey hunting is often a family activity, and it is helping to introduce new generations of youngsters to the beauty and excitement of Wisconsin’s great outdoors.”

Hunters who received a turkey permit in Zones 1-5 in the fall drawing can use those permits during the extended season in the zone for which they were issued. Permits left over from the fall drawing went on sale August 29. Permits are available on-line at dnr.wi.gov, at any licensed sales vendor or by calling 1-877-WILICENSE (1-877-945-4236).

Leftover permits –which are available only in zones 1, 3 and 4 this year –will be issued on a one per-day basis. The cost is $10 for state residents and $15 for non-residents. Fall leftover permit availability and a turkey zone map can be found on the Wild Turkey page of the DNR Web site.

Following the extended season in 2010, DNR wildlife managers will evaluate the results and the Natural Resources Board will consider whether the extended season should be made permanent.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
