There were 135,202 successful applicants who received 2019 spring wild turkey harvest authorizations following completion of the application drawing.
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has mailed postcard notifications to successful applicants. Hunters can also monitor their harvest authorization status in their online account at GoWild.WI.gov.
Along with a spring turkey harvest authorization, a valid 2019 spring turkey license and Wild Turkey Stamp are required to hunt turkeys in Wisconsin. Licenses and stamp privileges may be purchased online at GoWild.WI.gov or at any license agent
beginning in March at the start of the license year. Collector turkey stamps may only be purchased at DNR service centers.
In 2019, the season will run from April 17 through May 28, with six seven-day periods running Wednesday through the following Tuesday.
All harvest authorizations remaining after the drawing will be sold as bonus harvest authorizations starting at 10 a.m. Monday, March 18. Bonus harvest authorizations will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. Bonus harvest authorizations
may be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time-period sells out or the season closes.
