The deadline for hunters to apply for this year’s state park deer reduction hunts is Sunday.
Hunters must apply online by visiting Hunting.IN.gov and clicking on the “Reserved Hunt Info” link. Paper applications are not available.
Deer reduction hunts reduce the ecological damage that deer herds cause in state parks by helping to maintain deer browsing at a sustainable level. Biologists determine which parks require a reduction each year based on plant recovery and previous hunter success.
