Do you favor extending each of Wisconsin’s spring turkey hunting periods by two days so that there will be six consecutive, seven-day hunting periods that begin on Wednesday and continue through Tuesday of the following week?
Currently, Wisconsin’s spring turkey hunting seasons begin on the Wednesday nearest April 13 and continue for six consecutive five-day hunting periods. Hunting is not allowed on Monday and Tuesday.
The two days that separate each season were originally intended to allow time for scouting when hunters are not in the woods, to rest birds between seasons, or to give landowners a break from hunters.
Turkey hunting is now a familiar and accepted spring activity and many people believe that extending each spring hunting period by two days will provide additional hunting opportunity without causing conflicts. READ MORE HERE

“Gray wolves in the Western Great Lakes are recovered and no longer warrant protection under the Endangered Species Act,” said Acting Service Director Rowan Gould. “Under this proposed rule, which takes into account the latest taxonomic information about the species, we will return management of gray wolves in the Great Lakes to state wildlife professionals. We are confident that wolves will continue to thrive under the approved state management plans.”Public hearings for the proposed removal of wolves in the Western Great Lakes and proposed removal of eastern states from the gray wolf listing will be held May 18 in Ashland, Wisconsin, and on June 8 in Augusta, Maine. More information on the hearings will be available ONLINE | or by calling 612-713-5350.
