Turkey hunt application period begins

Hunters may apply online for a reserved turkey hunt by visiting hunting.IN.gov and clicking on the “Reserved Hunt Info” link.

The application period began Wednesday and continues through March 19. No late entries will be accepted.

The online method is the only way to apply.

Applicants must possess a hunting license valid for the hunt for which they are applying.

Hunters will be selected through a computerized random drawing. Drawing results will be posted at wildlife.IN.gov within two weeks after application deadlines, and an email will be sent to applicants when results are posted.

Local turkey hunts open for application are Crosley Fish and Wildlife Area, April 26 through 28 and April 29 through May 1; and Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge, April 26, 27 and 30 and May 1 (youth only April 22 and 23).

Only one application is allowed per license holder. No changes can be made once the application is submitted.
