UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) A deadline is coming up quickly for Wisconsin turkey and bear hunters. The D-N-R says the deadline is next Tuesday to apply for permits for next spring's turkey hunt, and for the bear season that begins around Labor Day. A lottery will be held to select winning applicants for the turkey permits. The drawing will take place late this month or in early January. Any remaining permits will go on sale in late March.
A youth turkey hunt is set for April 12th-and-13th. The regular spring turkey season begins on April 16th.
A drawing for bear permits will be held after the quota for the next hunt is set in January.
