Hearing Is Set For Proposed Deer Hunting Rule Changes

State officials will hold a public hearing this week on proposed changes to Indiana's deer hunting regulations, including a move that would allow more young hunters.

The August 13 hearing will be held at McCormick's Creek State Park, east of Spencer.

The state Department of Natural Resources is seeking to change several regulations, including allowing hunters under age 18 to take part in a two-day youth hunt held each September, currently open only to youngsters under age 16.

But the proposed change generating the most talk among hunters would allow youth hunters to take either a buck or a doe during their special hunt. Currently, they can only take a doe.

Reports indicate the state's Natural Resources Commission will likely approve all of the changes on September 22.
