Turkey hunters can apply for a reserved turkey hunt online by visiting hunting.IN.gov from Monday to March 22. Click on the "Reserved Hunt Info" link. The online method is the only way to apply.
No late entries will be accepted. Applicants must possess a valid hunting license for the species they wish to hunt.
The application process is now consolidated into the online services website along with Licenses, Check-In Game, and HIP registration. A DNR online account is not required to apply.
Hunts without registration fees will follow the same process as those with a fee. For hunts with no fee, you still will be asked to “Add to Cart, Proceed to Checkout and Place Order.” If the transaction total is $0, you will not be asked to enter credit card info.
For draw-hunt results, there is a “click here” link on the home page, or you can log in to your online services account. The link from the home page will only show hunts that you registered for when the date of the hunt is still upcoming. Logging in online to your account is required for you to see the full history of your past hunt registrations from previous years.
Hunters will be selected through a computerized, random drawing. Drawing results will be available at https://secure.IN.gov/apps/dnr/portal/#/home. Click on the link in the Reserved Hunt Box to see the status of your hunt registrations within two weeks after application deadlines. An email will be sent to applicants when results are posted.
