MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin turkey hunters shot 11 percent more birds in the spring season than a year ago.  

The DNR said today that the total harvest was 41,815 for a season that ended May 27th.  

Ecologist Krista McGinley said the double-digit increase was a sign that turkeys made it through the rough winter in better shape than many observers expected.  

About one of every five turkey hunters had success.
