More than a dozen Indiana state parks are shutting down for four days between Monday and December 1 for controlled deer reductions.
The first reduction is set for Monday and Tuesday.
The second is scheduled for November 20 and December 1.
Only individual hunters selected last September and those listed on their applications may participate in the hunts.
Affected parks in the Tri-State include Harmonie and Lincoln.
According to the Department of Natural Resources, the reductions help control browsing by deer to a level that helps maintain habitat throughout the state parks for all plants and animals.
Here’s a list of the affected state parks:
- Clifty Falls
- Fort Harrison
- McCormick’s Creek
- Potato Creek
- Turkey Run
