Turkey hunt numbers down

Wisconsin DNR

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Wisconsin hunters shot 34-percent fewer turkeys last fall.

The D-N-R said 4,633 birds were taken -- down from about seven-thousand in the fall hunt of 2012. Experts blame a long winter and a wet June for a reduction in young turkeys. The D-N-R says the low harvest is still surprising -- and they'll take a closer look at hunter surveys to see if they cut back on their participation.

Meanwhile, officials are gearing up for the spring turkey hunt -- and they say the action could be better, because a sizable number of males hatched in 2012 are now adults. A youth hunt kicks things off April 12th. The regular spring turkey season opens April 16th.
