UNDATED (WSAU)   Wisconsin turkey hunters were a lot more successful last fall than the year before. The D-N-R said just over seven-thousand turkeys were taken in the 2012 fall season. That’s up 28-percent from the previous year. Just over 54,000 permits were issued, and 13-percent of the hunters took home turkeys – up from 10-percent the year before.

The D-N-R said last year’s mild winter and spring boosted the population of gobblers.

This year’s spring turkey season starts on April 6 with a youth hunt. The regular season opens on April 10th.
