IN: 17 state parks to temporarily close for Indiana deer hunts

INDIANAPOLIS — Seventeen Indiana state parks will temporarily close their gates to visitors this month for hunts targeting deer that threaten native plants.

The parks will close to visitors on Nov. 12 and 13, and Nov. 26 and 27 during the two-day hunts .

State wildlife biologists evaluate which parks need a deer reduction based on each park’s habitat and previous deer-kill rates. Reducing the parks’ deer populations helps maintain habitat for other animals and state-endangered plants.
