Apply for Indiana Private Lands Access reserved hunts by Sept. 21, 2020

SOURCE: News release from Indiana Department of Natural Resources

Hunters can apply for reserved gamebird hunting opportunities on private property through the Indiana Private Lands Access program until Sept. 21.

Formally known as the Access Program Providing Land Enhancements (APPLE), the Indiana Private Lands Access program offers quail, pheasant, and woodcock hunting opportunities on private property. Draw result notifications will be emailed within two weeks of the application deadline. Successfully drawn applicants will be allowed two hunting partners. All regulations and bag limits apply.

These hunts are allocated through the online reserved hunt system. The online application is the only way to apply. Hunters may apply for one hunting period. Although the hunting period is two days, selected hunters may only hunt one day of the two-day period.

You can register for this hunt and check the status of the draw at on.IN.gov/reservedhunt.

The Indiana Private Lands Access program offers financial incentives to landowners who allow controlled public access hunting on their private lands. Wildlife biologists also work with landowners to establish and improve wildlife habitat.
