Hunting in Wisconsin: 3 Animals To Hunt in the Spring

By    |   Thursday, 04 Jun 2015 04:23 PM

Spring hunting in Wisconsin does not offer the same level of variety for available game as fall or winter seasons. The good news is that hunters do have a couple of options beyond simply targeting animals that have open seasons throughout the year.

Two bird species can be hunted during a portion of the spring in Wisconsin – crows and turkeys. A small game license is required for crow hunting.

For turkeys, hunters need a turkey license, stamp, and permit. It is illegal to sell, purchase or trade any game bird or the parts of a wild game bird, including turkeys.

Here's a closer look at the regulations governing each springtime game bird:

1. Crows
There are actually two separate hunting seasons for Crows in Wisconsin. The fall season starts in mid-September and ends in late November. The late winter/early spring season begins in late January and ends in late March.

Crows can be hunted statewide during each season. The daily bag limit is 15 crows and the possession limit is twice the daily bag limit.

2. Turkeys
Turkeys are hunted in both the fall and the spring. The spring hunt is divided into six periods. Each period lasts six days, with the first period starting in mid-April and the final period ending in late May.

Each turkey permit during the spring season is good for one male turkey. Hunters with more than one permit may harvest more than one turkey on the same day, only if the permits are good for the same designated six-day period. Wisconsin also holds a two-day youth turkey hunt each April.

This hunt lets youth hunters bag one male turkey on either day. Youth hunters are limited to hunting in the turkey management zone for which their tag was issued.

3. Year-Round Game
Beyond hunting birds, hunters can also pursue legal year-round game such as coyotes, snowshoe hares, opossum, skunks, and weasels. These animals simply require a small game or furbearer license.
