Applications for Spring Turkey Season
to be available by Jan. 29

Applications for the 2010 Fort McCoy Spring Turkey Season will be available by Friday, Jan. 29 and can be postmarked beginning Feb. 22.

David Beckmann, Fort McCoy wildlife biologist, said applications will be available at the Fort McCoy public Web site and the Permit Sales Office. Applications must be filled out and submitted to the Fort McCoy Permit Sales Office through the mail.

Successful applicants will be notified and then can purchase their permit through the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) Automated License Issuance System (ALIS), at any authorized ALIS agent throughout Wisconsin. All applicants are required to have a WDNR Customer Number when applying for a permit.

Individuals who do not yet have a Customer Number can contact a WDNR Service Center or call the toll free number at 888-936-7463 (seven-days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.) to have one created to get their application processed.

Beckmann said any application that doesn’t have a WDNR Customer Number will be returned without action.

Individuals are not eligible for a Fort McCoy Spring Turkey permit if they applied for a Spring Turkey permit through the WDNR and were selected for a State of Wisconsin Spring Turkey hunting zone in 2010.

Applications can be downloaded from the Fort McCoy Public Web site at http://www.mccoy.army.mil. Click on the Recreation Opportunities section, on fishing and hunting and then on applications.

People making e-mail requests for applications can send those requests to usarmy.mccoy.imcom-northeast.mail.dpw-permit-sales@mail.mil.

A maximum of four applications may be included per envelope. Further details and restrictions accompany the application form. For more information, call Permit Sales at 608-388-3337.
