The Indiana Department of Natural resources says 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.
Applicants must be Indiana residents who are 18 or over by Nov. 18 and hold a valid Indiana deer license. Each person may apply only once for each state park deer reduction effort.
