DNR may pay landowners to open up more turkey-hunting land

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The state D-N-R will pay landowners, in an effort to open up more land for turkey hunting in southeast Wisconsin. Officials are starting a pilot program in which landowners will get $5-an-acre if they promise to make their land available for the spring turkey hunts in 2014, '15, and '16.

It applies to property in Ozaukee, Washington, Waukesha, Walworth, Kenosha, and Racine counties.

The D-N-R says it will give preference to sites of at least 40 acres, where at least half the properties are forest land. Landowners have until January 31st to sign up.

More information is available on the D-N-R's Web site, accessible at Wisconsin-Dot-Gov.
