Landowners in turkey hunting zones 1, 2, and 3 interested in earning extra income in exchange for providing public access during the spring turkey hunt are encouraged to apply for the Turkey Hunter Access Program for the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

Landowners in Turkey hunting zones 1, 2, and 3 interested in earning extra income in exchange for providing public access during the spring turkey hunt are encouraged to apply for the Turkey Hunter Access Program (THAP) for the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

THAP provides financial incentives to private landowners interested in making their land available for public access during the spring turkey season, which runs from March 1-29.

Annual lease payment rates are $5 per acre and lease payments are made in the form of an upfront lump sum payment at the beginning of the contract. Priority will be given to parcels greater than 40 acres in size with at least 30-70 percent forest cover within a one-half mile of the property.

Research points to lack of access to quality hunting grounds as one of the reasons for declining hunting license sales. Private landowners can help retain, recruit and re-engage people in wildlife-dependent recreation by opening their land to public access for spring turkey hunting. Funding for the Turkey Hunter Access Program is provided by Wisconsin's Wild Turkey Stamp Program.

Interested landowners should contact Anne Reis, VPA-HIP and THAP coordinator, at 608-279-6483 for more information or visit dnr.wi.gov and search keyword "THAP."
