MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Hunters can start buying leftover Wisconsin spring turkey permits later this month.

The state Department of Natural Resources made 234,130 permits available. More than half were awarded through a lottery, leaving about 100,000 for over-the-counter sales.

Permits for Zone 1 will go on sale March 18, Zone 2 on March 19, Zone 3 on March 20 and Zone 4 on March 21. Permits for Zones 5, 6 and 7 will go on sale March 22.

The permits are $10 for residents, $15 for non-residents and $5 for hunters who are 10 or 11 years old. They'll be available through the DNR's website, authorized agents and at DNR service centers.

The spring turkey season begins April 10 and runs through May 21.
