Spencer, Ind. (AP) – State officials will hold a public hearing
next month on proposed changes to Indiana’s deer hunting
regulations, including a move that would allow more young
The Aug. 13 hearing will be at southern Indiana’s McCormick’s
Creek State Park.
The state Department of Natural Resources wants to change
several regulations, including allowing hunters under age 18 to
take part in a two-day youth deer hunt held each September.
That hunt is currently open only to youngsters under age 16.
But the proposed change generating the most talk among hunters
would allow youth hunters to take either a buck or a doe during
their special hunt. Currently, they can only take a doe.
The state’s Natural Resources Commission will likely approve all
of the changes on Sept. 22.
