The Department of Natural Resource's new licensing system "Go Wild" experienced a software glitch this morning, leaving thousands of sportsmen waiting to purchase their tags for turkey season. 

The glitch, happening around 10 a.m. was resolved around 10:35 a.m.   

"We know hunters are excited about the opportunity to participate in the spring turkey hunt and we apologize for any inconvenience caused by the delay," said Mark Rappe, of DNR's Bureau of Customer and Outreach Services. "We appreciate everyone's patience and the system is now up and processing incoming orders more efficiently than the previous system."

Today's sales started in Zone 1 for the hunt. Tuesday will see Zone 2 go on sale, with Zone 3 permits on Wednesday, Zone 4 on Thursday, and Zones 5, 6, and 7 on Friday. All remaining tags will be on sale Saturday.
