New deer hunt registry rolls out July 1

Local News

INDIANA (WEHT) – Deer hunters in Indiana can soon sign up for the chance to hunt on land owned by participating landowners with the new Deer Hunt Registry system.

It’s administered by the Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Fish & Wildlife.

The Deer Hunt Registry connects deer hunters with landowners, golf courses, parks, farmers, and communities. The registry will provide landowners with a list of hunters in the area willing to help.

The Deer Hunt Registry system is replacing the former Hunters Helping Farmers program and incorporating the Community Hunter Access Program (CHAP).

Hunters will be able to sign up for the chance to hunt starting July 1, 2019.
