WI changed the system so you can only buy a license in advance of OTC sales if you were drawn for a tag. Starting Monday the 19th at 10 for unit 1 you will have the license purchase option there online actually the tag you select is your license.
The change was made to prevent a license purchase without a valid tag and then that purchaser changing his mind and demanding his money back. No matter what happens after a license is purchased there is no refund.
Take all the info you need to purchase a tag with you and if you want you can call in and buy more tags. I have done this several times while out of state.
With all the tags available this year for unit 1 it would surprise me if they sell out all that fast with the exception of time C & maybe D but D has 9,682 tags that is almost twice the number as past years. Seasons E&F don’t usually sell out at all.
WDNR will sell you a license; don’t worry about that.
If you agree with me call it fact; if you disagree - call it my opinion.
After all - we are talking turkey.
