The wild turkey is truly one of Wisconsin's wildlife management success stories. A key role in the success of the wild turkey management program can be attributed to hunters through their purchase of the Wild Turkey Stamp which provides vital financial support in providing for future opportunities for turkey management and hunting in Wisconsin. Since wild turkeys were first successfully reintroduced into Wisconsin in 1976, population levels continue to increase and expand statewide. Successful restoration of the wild turkey resulted from tremendous hunter and landowner support, good survival and high quality habitat.
Turkey stamp funds have been providing opportunities for turkey management in Wisconsin since 1995. Sale of the turkey stamp currently brings in over $750,000 annually for developing, managing, conserving, restoring and maintaining the wild turkey population within the state.
If you observe sick or dead turkeys (or waterfowl, raptors and avian scavengers) while out turkey hunting, please make a note of the specific location and report your observations to your county wildlife biologist. To narrow the results, enter your county into the "county served" field. Wild turkeys are susceptible to avian influenza and hunters are advised to take appropriate precautions .
