Indiana hunters allowed to use high-powered rifle cartridges for hunting deer

INDIANA (WEHT) - An emergency rule signed by the Indiana DNR allows hunters to use high-powered rifle cartridges for hunting deer.

Similar rules have been used in previous years.

This allows the cartridges to be used on public hunting land.

The rifle cartridge must fire a bullet of .357 inch diameter or larger and have a case length between 1.16 and 1.8 inches.

Firearm deer season runs till December 3.
