Local News

Remember, deer will adapt to their environment. Over time, they may begin to ignore strategies that worked in the past, necessitating a homeowner to switch tactics.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Four northeast Indiana state parks are among 17 sites closing their gates to visitors for a pair of two-day deer hunts later this month.

The hunts are scheduled for Nov. 15-16 and Nov. 29-30. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says wildlife biologists determine where the hunts are needed to ensure healthy habitats for native plants and animals.

Those parks closing for hunts are Chain O’Lakes, Clifty Falls, Fort Harrison, Indiana Dunes, Lincoln, Ouabache, Pokagon, Potato Creek, Shakamak, Spring Mill, Summit Lake, Tippecanoe River, Turkey Run, Versailles, and Whitewater Memorial, Cave River Valley and Trine.

The agency reported that 1,243 deer were killed during last year’s state park hunts.
