Wis. DNR: Hunters take 11% fewer turkeys

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin wildlife officials say spring turkey hunters killed fewer birds this year.

The Department of Natural Resources says hunters killed 37,804 turkeys, down 11% from 2012.

DNR officials blamed poor hunting conditions, with unseasonably cold weather that persisted through May, deep snow in the north and rain, snow and wind in the south.
