Extend the turkey season in Wisconsin?

Wisconsin spring DNR meeting question #34

Question 34 – Extend each of the spring turkey hunting periods by two days (2012)
Currently, the 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. Under this proposal, spring turkey hunting periods would continue to open on Wednesdays but would continue through the Tuesday of the following week for seven days.

Do you favor extending each of the 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?
34. YES_______ NO______

I would bet a lot of guys wish they had two more days to hunt after all of the crappy weather we have been having. I am in favor of extending each of the hunting periods.

I voted no...the birds need those 2 days to settle down after being chased for 5 days. I think it only helps the hunters in the next period!
