Time arrives to apply for spring turkey hunts


Hunters can apply online for a reserved turkey hunt by visiting on.in.gov/reservedhunt and clicking on the "Reserved Hunt Info" link.

The application period is Jan. 6 through Feb. 19. No late entries will be accepted. The online method is the only way to apply. Applicants must possess a valid hunting license for the species they wish to hunt.

The application process is now consolidated into the website along with licenses, check-in game and HIP registration. An online account is not required to apply, so there is no need to log in.

For draw hunt results, there is a “click here” link on the home page or you can log in to your online services account.

Local properties where turkey hunts will be conducted are

  • Crosley Fish and Wildlife Area: April 22 through 26
  • Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge: April 22 through 27 (Youth only April 18 and 19)

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

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