Bonus Spring Turkey Harvest Authorizations To Go On Sale Soon

(Wisconsin) Dodge County hunters can soon purchase 2023 bonus spring turkey harvest authorizations. The sale will begin Monday, March 20th in Zone 1. Dodge County is located in Zone 2 which authorizations will be available for sale on Tuesday, March 21st.

Previously known as leftover permits, bonus harvest authorizations are available for purchase on the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources online license portal. Officials say sales begin at 10am and run through midnight each day. Bonus harvest authorizations are $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents.

Both residents and non-residents will have equal opportunities for purchase. Hunters can purchase bonus authorizations at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period are sold out or until the season closes. Bonus harvest authorization purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring drawings.

The Go Wild system will use an online queue to assign random numbers to customers who enter the site between 9:45am and 10am. There is no advantage to entering the site prior to 9:45am. Customers who join after 10am will be added to the queue in order of arrival.

In total, 101,924 bonus turkey harvest authorizations are available across turkey zones 1-5 for the 2023 spring season.
