Hunting in Indiana: 3 Things to Know About Hunting on Private Lands

By    |   Thursday, 22 Oct 2015 11:57 PM

With 95 percent of Indiana's land belonging to private owners, the state's many passionate hunters understandably have their eyes on what's in their neighbors’ backyards.

The Department of Natural Resources created the Indiana State Wildlife Action Plan in order to establish rules and regulations for hunters and landowners alike to follow while hunting on private property.

Here are three rules that must be adhered to while hunting on private property in the Hoosier State:

1. Permission
According to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, hunters must get the landowner's permission before entering private property. Without such permission, the hunter can be subject to charges of trespassing and could even be harmed by the landowner without repercussion.

Interested parties who want to hunt on private land can obtain a form from the Indiana DNR for the landowner to fill out. The "Permission to Hunt on Private Land Form" can be downloaded by the hunter to present to the landowner from the DNR's website.

2. Trap and Retrieve
A hunter needs to keep in mind that while he might trap or harm a hunted animal on public property, should that animal enter a private landowner's property, the hunter still needs to gain permission from the property owner before entering the property himself.

3. License
Whether a hunter hunts on private property, public property or his own property, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources still requires all hunters to carry the proper hunting license while on the hunt.
