Starting in 2018, Wisconsin DNR has waived the fall turkey drawing. A fall turkey harvest authorization will be issued with every fall turkey or conservation patron license purchase.
Hunters will choose a zone at the time of purchase for which their harvest authorization will be valid. Bonus harvest authorizations, formerly known as leftover tags, will be available for purchase in select zones starting Aug. 18 at 10 a.m.
The fall 2018 wild turkey season for Zones 1-5 is September 15 to January 6, 2019. For Zones 6 and 7, the season is September 15- November 16.
