MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Tens of thousands of leftover turkey hunting permits will go on sale in Wisconsin in March.
The state Department of Natural Resources made 225,729 permits available for the spring season. More than 145,500 permits went to hunters through the DNR's annual lottery, leaving about 80,000 permits left.
They'll go on sale on zone-per day basis for five straight days beginning at 10 a.m. on March 21. Any remaining permits for all zones will go on sale on Saturday, March 26. The sale will last until the permits all are taken or the season ends.
Permits can be purchased through the DNR's website, authorized agents and at DNR service centers. The spring season will run from April 13 through May 22. The season is divided into six, five-day time periods.
