Hunters can begin submitting online applications for reserved turkey hunts to be held on certain state and federally owned properties including Muscatatuck National Willdlife Refuge, beginning Jan. 31.
The application period runs through March 24 on DNR website.
Hunters must possess a valid 2014 spring turkey license, or lifetime license or youth hunt/trap license to apply for any of the reserved hunts. Applicants are allowed to apply for one property, and choose from the available dates for that property.
Whether a drawn hunter can bring a hunting buddy varies by property. On DNR properties, drawn hunters are not allowed to bring a buddy. At Muscatatuck, drawn hunters may bring a buddy, but only the drawn hunter can hunt.
Hunt dates at Muscatatuck are: April 23-24, 25-26, 27-28, and 29-30.
Other hunting properties throughout Indiana can be viewed on the DNR website.
