Bonus Spring Turkey Harvest Tags Going on Sale Next Week
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/14/2018
Bonus turkey harvest authorizations, once known as leftover permits, will go on sale the week of March 19 with each zone having a designated sales date. The Department of Natural Resources says authorizations can be purchased online through
GoWild.Wi.Gov or at the location of a license agent.
Bonus harvest permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents. All spring turkey hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2018 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they are a 2018 Conservation Patron License holder. Bonus harvest
authorization purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring drawings.
During the sale of the spring bonus harvest authorizations, the system will use an online queue to assign random numbers at 10 a.m. to customers who enter the site between 9:45 and 10 a.m. There is no advantage to entering the site prior to 9:45 a.m. Customers
who enter after 10 a.m. will be added to the line in order of arrival.
Bonus turkey harvest authorizations can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period is sold out, or the season closes. If the harvest authorizations for a zone sell out during the designated day, online users will be sent directly to the Go
Wild home page for the remainder of that day.
There are 106,078 spring turkey bonus harvest authorizations for sale in six of the seven turkey management zones.
