Application deadline nears for deer reduction
Thursday, August 22, 2013 11:00 AM
Sunday is the deadline for hunters to register to participate in this year's state park deer reduction hunt.
Clifty Falls State Park is one of several parks selected for the hunt.
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.
Properties requiring a reduction in 2013 are:
Firearms-only properties (any firearm legal to take deer in Indiana):
Brown County, Chain O'Lakes, Charlestown, Harmonie, Indiana Dunes, Lincoln, McCormick's Creek, Ouabache, Pokagon, Potato Creek, Prophetstown, Shades, Shakamak, Spring Mill, Summit Lake, Tippecanoe River, Turkey Run, Versailles and Whitewater Memorial state parks.
Archery-only properties (any archery equipment legal to take deer in Indiana):
Clifty Falls State Park and Fort Harrison.
Applicants must be Indiana residents, be 18 years old by Nov. 18, 2013, and possess at least one valid Indiana deer license to apply. Each person may apply only once for each state park deer reduction effort, regardless of primary or buddy status.
All applications sharing duplicate names will be disqualified. Designated areas are available for participants with special needs. For details, contact the property of interest before applying.
