Here are the preliminary spring 2013 Wisconsin turkey kill/harvest stats.
This graph compares the daily 2012 kill to the daily 2013 kill.
2013 = RED
2012 = BLUE
Obviously the extreme historic spring weather made a big difference in Wisconsin’s spring wild turkey kill. Notice the decreased kill in 2013 compared to 2012 until the late seasons when 2013 kill increases substantially above the kill rate of 2012. Without the nonparticipant adjustment the success rate was only 18%, this will increase when the adjustment is made. The figures here are only preliminary. The final stats will be available in the coming weeks.
