WI Wildlife Stamp Programs

For many years, Wisconsin's wild turkey, pheasant and waterfowl stamp programs have provided opportunities for wildlife and habitat management, with efforts directed toward key species. Turkey, pheasant and waterfowl hunters are required to purchase a species-specific stamp to legally harvest these game birds in Wisconsin.

Sales of these three stamps bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars annually for species management throughout the state, including habitat management, restoration, education and research projects.

Every other year, at the start of each fiscal biennium, there is a chance for nonprofit, conservation and non-government organizations, along with tribes and local, state and federal government agencies to apply for stamp funds.

There are three stamp programs:
Wild Turkey


Eligible applicants include nonprofit, conservation and non-government organizations; tribes; and local, state and federal government agencies.

Eligible projects include habitat management, habitat restoration, education, outreach and research that directly benefit wild turkeys, pheasants and waterfowl.
