2011 Spring Turkey Season applications available

Applications for the 2011 Fort McCoy Spring Turkey Season are available and can be postmarked beginning Feb. 28.

David Beckmann, Fort McCoy wildlife biologist, said applications are available at the Fort McCoy public website; Welcome Center, building 35; and the Permit Sales Office, building 2168. 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 any authorized Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) Automated License Issuance System (ALIS) agent throughout Wisconsin or online through the WDNR Wisconsin’s Online Licensing Center. All applicants are required to have a WDNR Customer Number when applying for a permit.

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

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 (daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.) to have one created to get their application processed.

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 2011.

Applications can be downloaded from the Fort McCoy Public website at http://www.mccoy.army.mil.

Click on the Recreation Opportunities section, on fishing and hunting and then on applications or by using the site map menu option.

People making e-mail requests for applications can send 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.
