Indiana Offers Put-and-Take Pheasant Hunting
DNR will be offering put-and-take hunting for ring-necked pheasants from Nov. 17-25.
These hunts will take place at Atterbury, Glendale, J. E. Roush Lake, Pigeon River (west of S.R. 3), Tri-County, Willow Slough and Winamac fish and wildlife areas.
Hunters can reserve put-and-take pheasant hunts online beginning Sept. 1 through Nov. 24 at IndianaOutdoor.IN.gov.
The hunts are $25 per person and the bag limit is two birds. This is a slight increase from last year's prices.
"Our goal has always been to have the put-and-take pheasant program pay for itself," said Mitch Marcus, chief of wildlife for DNR's Division of Fish & Wildlife. "The $25 fee allows the division to meet that goal,"
Hunters will be able to select the date, property and property location for their hunt.
Pheasant hunting season is extended at Atterbury and Glendale until Jan. 15. The bag limit is two birds of either sex.
