SPARTA, WI (WTAQ) - Fort McCoy, near Sparta, is gearing up for its spring turkey hunt – and it’s taking applications now.
Those who register at the Fort McCoy Web site by February 11th will be entered in a computerized lottery for permits.
If there are any permits left over, hunters can apply for them on a first-come, first-served basis. And anyone who gets a general Wisconsin turkey permit will not be eligible for one at Fort McCoy.
The season begins in April. The fort will have 6 hunting periods. One will be three days long, and the others will each last 5 days.
