Spring Turkey Hunting applications
to be accepted beginning Feb. 17

Applications for the 2012 Fort McCoy Spring Turkey Season will be available at the end of January and can be postmarked beginning Feb. 17.

Individuals are not eligible for a Fort McCoy Spring Turkey permit if they applied for a Spring Turkey permit through the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) and were selected for a State of Wisconsin Spring Turkey hunting zone in 2012.

David Beckmann, Fort McCoy wildlife biologist, said applications are available at the Fort McCoy public website, www.mccoy.army.mil; the Welcome Center, building 35; and the Permit Sales Office, building 2168. Completed applications must be submitted to the Fort McCoy Permit Sales Office through the mail.

Successful applicants will be notified and then can purchase their permit through any authorized WDNR Automated License Issuance System agent throughout Wisconsin or online through the WDNR Wisconsin’s Online Licensing Center.

All applicants must have a WDNR Customer Number when applying for a permit. Beckmann said any application without a WDNR Customer Number will be returned without action. Individuals who need a Customer Number can contact a WDNR Service Center or call the toll free number at 888-936-7463 (daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.).

E-mail requests for applications can be sent 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.
