Wisconsin Turkey Application Results - Online 1/31/07

Recommended Posts

Just received an email from Andrea Mezera, Assistant Upland Wildlife Ecologist for the WIDNR regarding turkey permits:

Quote:

Hi Joel,

You will be able to check online to see if you rec'd a spring turkey permit. You can do this by going to the
HSOforum
:

Click on "permits" and "I would like to submit my application or check my winner status/preference points". Just proceed to answer the questions and you will log yourself in. Just follow the spring turkey information.

Note: we just completed the drawing and are in the process of doing data checks. I would estimate the info should be on the
HSOforum
either late next week or the following week. Hope that helps!


Upon following these steps, the HSOforum says drawing results with be available 1/31/07.

Now who were the people complaining about our drawing times, and that WI is faster? smile.gif

That will help greatly with scheduling/access/planning - much better than March! Give me two tags baby!

Just got mine! Season "E" is about all they'll let us non-residents from across the river get smile.gif

Should be a really good time, tho scouting time may be limited.

The web form wasn't up, though I called the general DNR number there and they let me know my fate.

I'm in for E (May 9-13). I'll be hunting near the giant town of Waumandee in Buffalo County. All kidding aside, I think this area is one of prettiest on the planet. At least in my eyes.

I checked online earlier and couldn't get any info but my bud who I put in as a group with said he got the 4th season, end of April. We'll be north of Eau Claire near Colfax in his honey hole!

Ray, Waumandee is sweet, my dad grew up just south of there in Oak Valley and my grandmother is buried in the cemetery in Waumandee. Till last year I hunted near Gilmanton - truly God's country, especially in spring.

I couldn't agree with you more, Cooter. Even on the days when the birds shut down and I have no idea where they are in those hills, I still can't think of a better place to spend a warm spring afternoon than walking a deer trail half way up a hill.

I applied for a permit several times in the Prairie du Chien area... I have relatives with a farm down there... Can't seem to get a permit though... so I apply up here in the metro area and always get one for the last of the two seasons.

Good Luck!

Mikie,

I used to apply North of Centuria and would not get picked because of how I was applying. Granted I was a non-resident landowner even. So I called the local Game/Fish DNR guy and he explained exactly how to apply so I would be sure to get drawn based on his ubderstanding of preference system.

That might be worth a shot.

Just got our permits in the mail today. I got the first season, April 11-15 in Zone 37. Will be hunting around the Prairie Farm area. My husband got a permit for the same zone, May 16-20. I get Landowner Preference from my dad, he doesn't hunt. We are moving down there this month so the good news is for next year we will own enough land for my husband to get Landowner Preference and I will just get if from my dad so we each should be guaranteed a tag every year. One can never get enough turkey hunting!! There is nothing better than sitting out early on a cool spring morning listening to a bunch of gobblers answer your calls. We have turkey hunted the past two years, the first year I got a bird and last year my husband shot one within 10 feet of where I had got mine the year prior. Growing up there I never saw a turkey until about 7 or 8 years ago, now they are everywhere. I love it!!!

Fishtrapgirl, thanks for relaying your experiences. That's what it's all about anyway right?

Last year my son got his first turkey with gun and I got skunked with bow. This year I'll be looking for my first bird with a bow but I'll just enjoy hearing that first Tom gobble as dawn breaks on top of the oak ridge.

UGUIDE,

Getting a turkey with our bows is our goal also for this year. We wanted to use our bows before, but having never really turkey hunted before we figured we should use a shotgun. Well, both the turkeys we have got were under 20 yards away and would have been a good bow shot. So definetely this year we will give it a try. Good luck with this year's hunt!

This is our 1st year turkey hunting . Heading back from Yellow Lake last summer we saw a bunch of Turkeys along side the road and we figured hunting them would be a Turkey shoot . Get it ? Anyway applied for a permit and did a little research and discovered that roughly 25% of Turkey Hunters are successful . So much for the Turkey Shoot . But we drew 2 permits for Zone 38 and I'm really looking forward to it .

You bet, 25% is a standard avg. so to speak throughout all the turkey hunting land. Locally, and per-permit-area, odds are different, specifically for earlier seasons. Not to burst your bubble any further, but odd for later seasons like the one I'm hunting is typically even poorer odds! confused.gif

However, what the stats do not show, are the odds of a well-prepared hunter with some scouting under their belt!!! I keep track of the successes of the good turkey hunters I know (shhh, don't tell them smile.gif), and these folks avg. around 75%, and they pass on jakes! Even though this is your first year, be as prepared as possible, and never quit! Your odds are much better than the 25% stated then.

Good luck.

Joel

No bubble to burst here . I'm stoked . If I don't see one that'll be OK . Gander Mtn. is having a Clinic 3/27 up here so I'll get in on that and prepare best that I'm able but just being back in the woods will be nice . I was charged by a Brown Bear in AK years ago , close - 10' , and have been kinda skittish in the woods since but I'm really looking forward to this and hopefully all goes well . I'm heading to the store for a box of stuffing right now .

So very true JN. Also, like any other type of hunting, the more time you put into it bumps your odds dramatically.

UGUIDE:That Boscobel/Stuben area has very pretty country down there.Lots of hills and ridges.Matter of fact,it's all hills and ridges.Every thing seems to be up or down.No such thing as a straight road there.Farm fields up on top or down in the bottoms with woods on the side hills.Very nice when the country starts to green up. Lots of birds too.

Paintbrush, that terrain sounds familiar. These hills ain't for breakfast anymore. They eat your lunch and dinner too!

At 25% grade I guess you could cal it turkey terrain. Seems like their favorite pattern is to fly off the tops in the morning allllllllll the way down to the bottom and spend the rest of the day working their way back up to roost at the end of the day.

Thank God we have something to look forward to in the spring for hunting.

    • Stuff is getting hard to find so best load up on ammo I'd you find it.  Many have rebates going now so that helps some.   I haven't shot the new Feferal TSS shot yet but guys that have report excellent patterns and downrange energy.  Luke Don mentioned 45 yards is doable depending on your gun's pattern.  Two springs ago my dad dumped a big Tom at 54 yards, (misjudged the yardage and bird was working away) with the federal heavyweight in 6 shot with his 20 gauge.  I'm not advocating for shooting those distances, but it's a testmate to how far this ammo has come. 
    • I've been seeing them in corn fields and around home owner homes.
    • if you have gone through a set of carbides in 1000 miles you definitely need to change them now as you are getting a lot of wear 
    • Just a reminder this Seminar is tonight.
    • I did shoot the RX-1 but there was more hand vibration and a little louder. RX-3 did not have any of that . Also could just be in my head but felt smoother in the draw too.
    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
