MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin
wildlife officials have decided to scale back the sale of leftover spring
turkey permits out of concerns the harsh winter has reduced the state flock.




The Department of
Natural Resources made 237,765 permits available this year. The agency awarded
135,893 through its annual lottery and had planned to sell the remaining
permits by management zone starting Monday.



But agency officials
announced Thursday they have decided not to sell the 426 permits for zones six
and seven in far northern Wisconsin and issue 866 fewer permits in zones four
and five, which span the state's upper mid-section on a line that runs roughly
from St. Croix County to Marinette County.



Agency officials say
hunters have been urging a conservative approach to the spring season given the
severe winter.
