I should clarify what I was talking about. In our zone 2 there haven't been a lot of surplus tags till the past 2 years. Zones in the western part of the state and south west have had more OTC for a few years, that is why we used to go hunt unit 3. And I think it was about 5 years ago, maybe 4 that they changed the zones in WI. There used to be 50+ zones, can't remember the exact number, and the tag situation was totally different. By making the new zones, that totally changed the OTC tag situation.
Just want to say, I don't want you to think I have a problem with NR coming over hunting, there are plenty of turkeys to go around, and TJ I wouldn't have given you the info I did if I thought that way. Heck, you can have the first season, I never apply for it as the weather is usually to iffy and it seems like half the time it snows that season. The earliest I apply for is the 2nd. And I usually get it!
