DNR now accepting applications for reserved turkey hunts
Monday, February 3, 2014 7:30 AM
Hunters can now begin submitting online applications for reserved turkey hunts to be held on certain state and federally owned properties.
The application period runs through March 24 at dnr.IN.gov/fishwild/5834.htm.
New for 2014, the Department of Natural Resources will offer a reserved hunt at Sugar Ridge Fish & Wildlife Area in southwestern Indiana.
Hunters must possess a valid 2014 spring turkey license, or lifetime license or youth hunt/trap license to apply for any of the reserved hunts. Applicants are allowed to apply for one property, and choose from the available dates for that property.
Whether a drawn hunter can bring a hunting buddy varies by property. On DNR properties, drawn hunters are not allowed to bring a buddy. At Muscatatuck National Willdlife Refuge, drawn hunters may bring a buddy, but only the drawn hunter can hunt. At Big Oaks National Wildlife Refuge, a buddy is required.
Hunt dates and properties are as follows:
• Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge: April 23-24, 25-26, 27-28, and 29-30.
• Deer Creek, Glendale, J.E. Roush, Jasper-Pulaski, Kingsbury, LaSalle, Pigeon River, Tri-County, Willow Slough and Winamac fish and wildlife areas; Mississinewa and Salamonie lakes; and Aukiki Wetland Conservation Area: April 23-25, 26-27, 28-30, and May 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-11.
• Atterbury, Chinook, Crosley, Fairbanks Landing, Hillenbrand, Hovey Lake and Minnehaha fish and wildlife, and Big Oaks National Wildlife Refuge: April 23-25, 26-28.
• Sugar Ridge Fish & Wildlife Area: April 23-25, 26-27.
