WI tag situation - Clarification???

Recommended Posts

Cooter, other sconnies:

What's the tag situation in WI with the leftover permits.

Last trip to the bar I had a turkey hunter from WI tell me that leftover tags were now over the counter there for the last few seasons, and fairly cheap, even for nonresidents?

Clarification, press please?

This is the first year you can buy 'leftover' tags OTC. Previously, they'd just give you two tags but they figured out how to make money on the surplus. Also, they were supposed to be available March 10 at noon, but that got bumped to March 25 at noon, this Sat. Most units have tags available for the 5th and 6th seasons, you can go to WI DNR website and get all the zone, season, tag info. Once at the home page, look under "Current Issues" on the right side of the page - the turkey info is listed first. Prices are $10 for res and $15 for nonres.

Thanks much! I think at $15, there'll be quite a few of us mud-ducks eating cheese curds late May.

Thanks too for the info on where to find the info.

No prob - its a great opportunity and I personally like the later seasons anyway - I apply for 4th and then 5th seasons each year. If you or any other mud ducks decide to come over, let me know and I'll see if I can help put you on some beards.

Ha!

I was wondering if this would come up! They've got themselves in a licensing/revenue pickle.

$15 if still available for sure!

Well guys, you've still got to buy your license and stamp. That's not included in the tag price. And the extra tags are going fast, only a few areas left when I checked yesterday.

Knew it looked too good to be true. Tag price of $15 for NR permit, plus the $65 and change for the license and stamp.

Oh, I forgot, zone 7 had a severe winter kill and all the longbeards have perished. J/K - should be plenty of opportunities for you - that 5th season is one of my favorites. You got a rangefinder? I don't and that almost cost me a hoss gobbler last year when the arrow went low - except I had the backup 870 in the blind with me grin.gif

      I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.

      I have a Striker Hardwater and the Wife has the Clam Rise suit. Both are great and we chose them based on how they fit, each body is different and you will find different brands and even product lines within a brand will fit different. I would try stopping by Thorne Bros and see what they have in stock to try on, they might have more upstairs if you dont see your size.  Float suits dont go on sale much other than the Blaine Ice show, St Paul Ice show, Black Friday and then after the season.

      This are premium Rods from Alpha Angler. This company is the rod sponsor for 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk. The Rebound: is a glass cranking rod. Best I've ever used. Fantastic feel. The Zilla: is a a perfect all around Rod. I primarily used it for pitching jigs. I've owned these rods for less than a year they were purchased in spring 2018. I just have way more tackle rods reels etc. Than I have room for. Rods new retail together are $475 I'm selling them as a package for $320. Or individually for $175 each.  I'm in the north metro area. And am willing to drive a reasonable distance if need be. Feel free to make an offer but a serious ones only. Also I have photos of the Rods if youd like just email me and I'll send then to you. Let me know!  Email me at  [email protected]

      I posted some pic's of the heaves on above Fishing Reports info post.   Pretty interesting if you never seen anything like that.   CRUNKY CRUNCHY sounds of ice on rocks last night as trucks drive on an off.....always fun.   T

      Went out just to check ice depth today, measured 13.5" on lake one a couple hundred yards out from the public access in town.  No snow left, very slick, and lots of heave action on a majority of the shoreline.
    • Bryan P
      Me too. Got out few times before but nothing really going on. This was my best outing yet for me this season. Hoping to have more of these days!  I'm glad you enjoy my videos. You can follow my channel if you want to see all my videos. I only post some on this site.
