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.

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
