State Parks To Close For Controlled Deer Hunts

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources will close 17 state parks later this month for controlled hunts in order to reduce deer population in the parks.

D-N-R officials say the hunts are necessary in order to keep deer populations at a healthy level and so that they don’t destroy too much of the vegetation that grows in the parks.

Local hunters are selected by random drawings to take part in the annual hunts.
