Allow Sale of Turkey Bones and Feathers

The question we want to know is WHAT do YOU think of this. Let us know. Take the POLL!

VOTE YOUR OPINION


This is Question 52 in this year’s Fish & Game Rules Hearings Questionnaire.

Attendees at the Spring Hearings on Monday, April 9 will have the opportunity to vote on this and many other advisory questions. Currently state law prohibits the sale of legally harvested wild game birds.

The prohibition on the sale, purchase or bartering of most wild animals and their parts is primarily aimed at protecting certain species from illegal harvest by not creating a market for the sale of wild animals and/or their parts. Some people would like to use the bones of legally harvested wild turkeys to make calls and the feathers for decorative uses in various crafts that they could then sell.

It is legal to possess and make such items from wild game birds for personal use or to give them away, but they may not be sold for a profit. Turkey bones and feathers from captive or farm-raised birds may be used to make such items, which would then be legal to sell.

Spring turkey season opens April 11

MADISON – The April 11 opening of the 2012 spring wild turkey hunting season is just around the corner, and state wildlife officials say hunters can look forward to a good spring hunt. They also are encouraging experienced hunters to consider taking a youth out during the April 7 and 8 statewide spring turkey youth hunt.

“Turkey populations should have come through the relatively mild 2011-12 winter in good shape,” said Scott Walter, upland game biologist for the Department of Natural Resources. “As long as the critical nesting and early brood-rearing season remains dry and warm, populations can be expected to approach naturally occurring population limits imposed by habitat and predators, all good news for turkey hunters.”

Wisconsin has seen record breaking spring weather, but biologists say the early warm weather won’t have much effect on turkeys.

“Spring turkey seasons are set so that toms can breed many of the hens in a given zone before the opening date for that zone,” said Walter. “This timing limits accidental harvest of hens but the toms are still active and coming in to hunters’ calls and decoys.

“This shouldn’t change since breeding activity is influenced by daylight and not so much by temperatures. Breeding and breeding behavior occurs about the same time every year. What could impact hunters is the amount of foliage in the woods. From what I’ve seen, leaf development is running three weeks or more ahead. The landscape during the first hunting period will look like third period on opening day.”
