Wisconsin non-resident

4 posts in this topic

My son and I have been successful in securing permits for the last 3 years in Wisconsin. We are Minnesota residents. Has anyone had any success securing non-resident permits for the A, B or C seasons in Wisconsin? I had someone from the Wisconsin DNR tell me that non-residents will never get drawn for any of those first three seasons. Also, does anyone know if non-residents have access to the surplus tags that are sometimes available?

As a non-resident, no, you probably will never be drawn for for the early seasons. I have had good luck applying for the weekend of the Wisconsin fishing opener. This seems be be the earliest you can hope for. Yes, you are eligible for the left over tags.

I was told by one of my dad's archery rep's that non-residents in WI should apply for the last couple seasons. I took his advice last year, my first applying and drew a tag. My season started the Wed. before our fishing opener and ended that Sunday. Birds gobbling every morning, I just couldn't close the deal and missed the same gobbler 3 different times w/ my bow. Still a great time though and looking forward to trying it this spring...hopefully! grin.gif

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
