With only 2 percent of Indiana's land designated public property, hunting spots are scattered across the Hoosier State, but they are not scarce. Beautiful hunting, fishing, and sporting grounds can be found in every region of the state offering their own unique treasures.

Here are three of the top hunting destinations in Indiana:

1. Clark State Forest
Founded in 1903, Clark State Forest was originally created to serve the educational research industry in plant cultivation, nursing, and forestry. The forest is the oldest public forest in Indiana, and boasts 24,000 acres of land open to hunting, fishing and nature enthusiasts statewide. The forest has three hiking trails, nine horse trails, and five mountain biking trails.
The land also boasts an outdoor gun range. The forests lakes have boat launches to equip hunters and fishermen alike. Hunters flock to the area each year in pursuit of deer, small game, and wild turkey, according to the State Parks website.

2. Jasper Pulaski Wildlife Area
The Jasper Pulaski Wildlife Area is located at 5822 North Fish and Wildlife Lane in Medaryville, Indiana, in the state's northern region. The area includes 8,062 acres of hunting ground for deer, waterfowl, and dove hunting, as well as a gravel pit for warm water fishing, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources said. Keep a lookout for sandhill cranes while hunting there – more than 10,000 of the birds reportedly visit the area during the fall migration.

3. Pigeon River Fish and Wildlife Area
This wildlife area in Mongo, Indiana – located in the northeastern part of the state – has nearly 12,000 acres of forestry, rivers and camping grounds, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources said. The area has an active wildlife population and is perfect for hunting deer and pheasant. Established in 1956, the Pigeon River Fish and Wildlife Area boasts 529 acres of lakes and impoundments, plus has 17 miles of free flowing river, the DNR says.
