Only hunters selected from a draw in September and their designated hunting partners may participate in the hunts.

The parks affected are:

  • Chain O’Lakes
  • Charlestown
  • Clifty Falls
  • Fort Harrison
  • Harmonie
  • Lincoln
  • McCormick’s Creek
  • Ouabache
  • Pokagon and Trine State Recreation Area
  • Potato Creek
  • Shades
  • Shakamak
  • Spring Mill and Cave River Valley Natural Area
  • Tippecanoe River
  • Versailles
  • Whitewater Memorial.

Those parks will be closed Nov. 13-14 and Nov. 27-28.

Only hunters selected from a draw in September and their designated hunting partners may participate in the hunts.
