DNR Stamp Contest Supports Species Management

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is accepting entries for the Wild Turkey, Pheasant and Waterfowl Stamp design contests. The winning artwork will appear on the 2022 Wisconsin Wild Turkey Stamp.

“This is a unique opportunity for Wisconsin artists to showcase your artwork statewide, while also promoting wildlife management,” said Alaina Gerrits, DNR assistant upland ecologist.

Turkey, pheasant and waterfowl hunters are required to purchase a species-specific stamp to legally harvest these game birds in Wisconsin, and their sales bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars annually for wildlife and habitat management, restoration, education and research projects. 

The deadline to submit stamp designs is July 15; judging will take place Aug. 28. Rules, entry information and reproduction-rights agreements are available at
