Congratulations on a great spring hunt.
You got that right! The 2011 season in Wis may have been one of my worst hunting trips ever. In 2 weeks I never heard a gobble on land I could hunt and experienced the worst hunting pressure in all the years I hunted there. 1 year later and it may have been the best hunting trip ever. What a difference a year makes...eh? Not a lot of birds but certainly more. And hardly any other hunters along with the ability to purchase unsold tags.
I think the mild winter with more bird survival along with less hunting pressure, as evidenced by the unsold tags, was the reason. The fact that the birds were extremely cooperative may have helped too.
I am sick of the heat and the sun and the drout and smoke from fores. Bugs ain't bad though...I think they are all dried up. Hoppers might get out of hand...time will tell.
Looking for Sept 1st and the start of dove season...then teal...then ducks...then Wisconsin

The above permit levels are FINAL. However, fall permit levels may be revised following reviews of new population data.

You both have my sympathies.
Did you apply for your fall WI license yet?
