MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin wildlife officials say leftover spring turkey permits will go on sale next week.

The Department of Natural Resources made 237,765 permits available this year. The agency awarded 135,893 through its annual lottery.

DNR officials plan to sell the remaining permits by management zone. Zone one will go on sale Monday; zone two on Tuesday; zone three on Wednesday; zone four on Thursday; and zones five, six and seven on Friday.

The permits cost $10 for state residents, $15 for non-residents and $5 for hunters who are 10 or 11 years old.

The spring turkey season begins with a youth hunt from April 12 through April 13. The rest of the season runs from April 16 through May 27.
