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

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
