THE DEADLINE TO APPLY FOR FALL TURKEY & SHARP-TAILED GROUSE PERMITS IS AUGUST 2
- Hunters have until midnight on Monday, August 2nd to apply
There will be 95,700 wild turkey permits available to hunters for the Fall 2010 turkey hunting season, the same number that was available during the 2009 fall season.
The 2010 fall season runs from September 18th through Nov. 18 for all seven of Wisconsin’s turkey management zones. The extended season for Zones 1-5 ONLY will run from Nov. 29 through Dec. 31. Hunters who receive a fall turkey permit in Zones 1-5 can use those permits during the extended season in the zone for which they were issued. The bag limit is one turkey of any age or sex per fall turkey hunting permit (also known as a carcass tag). Hunters must bring their tagged turkey to a designated registration station no later than 5 p.m. the day after it is harvested.
What’s new for Fall 2010?
Beginning this fall, hunters may use dogs to hunt wild turkeys throughout the state of Wisconsin. This is the result of a pilot program that ran in a limited 9-county area and was extended statewide following review.
2010 marks the second year of a two-year trial period for the extended fall turkey season in Zones 1-5. After evaluation by the Department, a rule change that would continue the season in future years may be proposed.

For 2010, 330 sharp-tailed grouse hunting permits are available. This is a decrease from 2009 when 635 permits were available. The reduction in permits is the result of a combination of continued habitat loss or conversion, increasingly isolated populations, and cyclical grouse population dynamics, according to wildlife biologists.
Sharp-tailed grouse management units use the same boundaries and designations as deer management units (DMUs). In 2010, only two units will have permits available. DMU 2 will have 295 permits DMU 8 will have 35.
Hunters are reminded to carefully review the zone map and apply only for units that are open. Applying for closed units will result in an invalid application.
