Spaulding Outdoors: The Inside on Indiana's Outside

(Continued)

Reserved Youth Turkey Hunts

Youth hunters can apply for a reservation to hunt one of 21 DNR properties during the special youth wild turkey hunting season, April 19 and 20. The hunters must be younger than 18 on the day of the hunt. The reserved hunts are at the following fish & wildlife areas (FWAs): Atterbury, Crosley, Deer Creek, Glendale, Hovey Lake, Jasper-Pulaski, Sugar Ridge, Kankakee, Kingsbury, LaSalle, Pigeon River, Roush, Tri-County, Minnehaha, Fairbanks Landing, Hillenbrand, Chinook, Winamac and Willow Slough. Hunts will also take place at Salamonie and Mississinewa lakes. The number of hunters allowed on each property will be limited.

Interested hunters or adult representatives must register in person or by phone identifying the property they wish to hunt. Hunters should register between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. local time between March 17-21 or March 24-28. Hunters may register for only one property. Hunters wanting to sign up for Fairbanks Landing and Chinook hunts may do so at Deer Creek FWA. Hunters wanting to sign up for Hillenbrand or Minnehaha hunts may do so at Goose Pond FWA. Those wanting to sign up for LaSalle may do so at Willow Slough.

At the properties where the number of registered hunters exceeds the spots available, a drawing will be held on March 31. A youth hunter may be drawn for either one or both hunt days depending on the number of applicants. All applicants will be notified of drawing results by mail. Applicants must possess a 2014 Youth Consolidated Hunting & Trapping License, a 2014 Non-Resident Youth Spring Turkey License with a game bird habitat stamp privilege, or Lifetime Comprehensive Hunting License. Apprentice hunting licenses of the types named above may also be used.

When registering a youth for one of the hunts, make sure to have the type of license being used for the hunt and the license number. Hunts will run one-half hour before sunrise until noon at properties in the Central Time Zone and one-half hour before sunrise until 1 p.m. on properties in the Eastern Time Zone. Youth hunters selected for the hunt may check in at any time each day until the end of legal hunting hours for the property. Properties will not have a daily “no-show” drawing. Hunters interested in possible unfilled quotas at a property should phone the property for more information before showing up.
