Draw a Deer Hunting Tag, Help the Birds

A drawing for the Reynolds Creek Game Bird Habitat Area’s archery deer hunt will be held at the Kingsbury Fish & Wildlife Area office at 10 a.m. CDT on Aug. 31.

To be eligible, hunters must present their 2013 deer license, after which they’ll be given a numbered badge. A computer-generated random draw will select hunters for choice of hunt period. Hunters will be drawn as individuals only.

There will be five hunters chosen for each hunt period. Hunters drawn may relinquish their hunt to a youth hunter 17 years old or younger. If drawn, a hunter will be given a special permit card with the hunt period selected. There are no drawings for stand-by hunters.

Deer hunting at Reynolds Creek is archery only. Tree stands are not permitted to be left overnight on the property. No urban deer licenses or bonus county licenses are permitted.

Hunt periods are Oct. 1-6, 7-13, 14-20, 21-27; Oct. 28 – Nov. 3, Nov. 4-10, 11-17, 18-24, Nov. 25-Dec. 1, Dec. 2-8, 9-15, 16-22, 23-29 and Dec. 30 – Jan 5.

Kingsbury is located at 5344 S. Hupp Road, LaPorte, IN 46350.
