Hunting in Indiana: 5 Animals To Hunt in the Fall

By    |   Thursday, 22 Oct 2015 08:29 PM

Fall provides hunters with an array of opportunities to catch a wide diversity of wildlife across an expanse of public land in Indiana. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) manages more than 100 fish and wildlife areas that cover 670,000 acres.

While that’s a lot of ground to cover, things can get crowded in Indiana in the fall. One of the most popular hunting seasons, deer season, starts in the fall, along with many other animals. Here are five animals to hunt in the fall in Indiana:

1. Deer
Deer season officially starts in mid-September for urban deer hunting, and lasts through the end of January. The season for archers runs from the beginning of October to the beginning of January while youth hunting lasts for just two days at the end of September. General firearms are permitted between mid-November through the end of the month.

Indiana is recognized across state lines as being a premier destination for anyone interested in bagging a prize buck. The chances of taking a record whitetail are greater in Indiana that anywhere else in the country, according to Wide Open Spaces. “Indiana is another Midwestern state that for years has been flying under the radar, and many Hoosier hunters would probably be content to keep it that way,” the website said.

2. Fox
Hunters can catch both red and gray foxes starting in mid-October until the end of February. Hunting hours for furbearers starts on noon of the first day of the season until noon of the last day, while trapping starts at 8 a.m. on the first day. There is no daily bag limit for foxes, though it’s illegal to hunt young fox.

3. Coyote
Coyote hunting season starts in mid-October and runs through the end of January. Indiana boasts a robust population of coyotes, with some dubbing the state “coyote country.” Coyotes are a predator that poses threats to other animals and humans. As a result, there is no daily bag limit.

4. Squirrel
The most popular squirrel to hunt in Indiana is the fox squirrel, which is the largest of all squirrel species found in the state. There are no gun restrictions in place for hunting squirrels. Gray and fox squirrel hunting season begins in mid-August and ends at the beginning of February.

5. Wild Turkey
Many wild turkey seasons start in the winter and spring, however there are a few options available to hunters in the fall. The general firearm season starts at the end of October and ends on the first day of November. Meanwhile, archery season starts at the beginning of October and goes until the beginning of November. Turkey hunting hours start a half hour before sunrise and last until sunset. The bag limit for wild turkey is one bird of either sex per hunter each fall season.
