Statewide Turkey

Season Begins

The 2022 turkey season kicked ou this past weekend with the annual statewide youth hunt. A few brave youngsters ventured out to withstand below average temperatures in anticipation of filling an early turkey tag.

Period 1 of the 2022 season kicks ou Wednesday of this week. A number of experts claim Wisconsin’s turkey population is on a decline from previous years. Last year's harvest indicated a sharp decline from previous years.
