There is a glitch reporting up the leftover tags they'll be getting to it soon which means they may have to make a new page with a different link. I am really anxious to see how many and where the leftovers are. Usually I am not a big fan of leftovers, however when it comes to these the more the merrier.
There are guys like that around me too Putt, they are just plain lucky and are usually the same ones that get drawn for all the good stuff at the banquets. WDNR has no preference system in this draw so we all start each year as first timers making luck a valuable asset. You mentioned the lucky guy in your office doesn't even buy his tag each year. This apparently is not uncommon as it appears by comparing license sales to drawn tags about 20-25,000 successful applicants do not buy and therefore do not go turkey hunting; worse these tags do not go into the leftover OTC sale.
To the NR applicants -- I apologize; WI does not treat you equally with residents; All residents who apply are drawn first then NR are drawn for what is left. Some of us have tried to change this for you but the majority of resident turkey hunters won't have it any other way. But at least the price of NR license and tags is the best deal going in the nation.
NR increase their chance of successfully drawing by applying for later seasons as their first choice this appears to be 4th season or later in most units.
