Turkey hunters can bag more birds this spring by claiming extra turkey hunting permits later this month. Door County DNR Conservation Warden Chris Kratcha says that people who applied for this spring’s turkey harvest can claim an additional hunting permit for zone 2, including Door County, on Tuesday, March 16. Kratcha says there are many leftover authorizations for the final two time periods this spring.
Kracha says turkeys are numerous and very visible in open area fields this time of year. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources sponsors a youth turkey hunt that opens on April 17 and 18. The one-week spring hunts start with Period A on April 21 and end with Period F from May 26 through June 1.
