The Indiana Division of State Parks is seeking volunteer hunters to participate in deer management hunts at 17 locations later this year. Applications must be received by Aug. 26th. Properties where hunting is allowed with firearms only include Chain O’Lakes, Indiana Dunes, Pokagon, Prophetstown, and Tippecanoe River, along with others in the southern part of the state.
Properties where hunting is allowed by archery only include Trine State Recreation Area in Steuben County. The dates for the hunts are November 18-19 and December 2-3.
Volunteers can apply online at wildlife.IN.gov/5834.htm, where additional guidelines can be found under the State Park Deer Management Draw Hunts heading.
Management hunts are carried out exclusively to achieve an ecological objective – to ensure balanced and healthy natural communities for all plants and wildlife within park boundaries.
Successful applicants are allowed to take up to three deer. Only one can be antlered. Deer harvested at a state park management hunt are not counted toward regular statewide bag limits.
