For the upcoming 2019 Wisconsin fall turkey hunting, the drawing has been waived. A fall turkey harvest authorization will be issued with every fall turkey or conservation patron license purchase.

Wisconsin’s fall turkey season is conducted differently than spring. In the fall, there is one continuous season where both male and female turkeys can be harvested. 

Hunters are allowed to use dogs for fall turkey hunting statewide, which is not allowed in the spring.

Hunters will choose a zone at the time of purchase for which their harvest authorization will be valid.
