The youth wild turkey hunting sea- son is April 20 -21 on selected In- diana Department of Natural Re- sources properties. Youth hunters or an adult repre- senting them must register in per- son or by phone during the normal office hours for the property they wish to hunt. Hunters are allowed to register for only one property. A limit will be placed on the number of youth hunters allowed to hunt a respective property each hunting day in an attempt to pro- vide quality hunts for participants. Participating DNR fish and wild- life areas include Atterbury, Chi- nook, Crosley, Deer Creek, Fair- banks Landing, Glendale, Goose Pond, Hillenbrand, Hovey Lake, Jasper-Pulaski, Kankakee, Kings- bury, LaSalle, Pigeon River, Roush Lake, Sugar Ridge, Tri-County, Wabashiki, Willow Slough and Wi- namac. Youth hunts are also being offered at Mississinewa Lake and Salamonie Lake. Those wanting to sign up for Chinook or Wabashiki hunts may do so at Deer Creek FWA. Those wanting to sign up for Fairbanks Landing or Hillenbrand hunts may do so at Goose Pond FWA. A drawing will take place on Monday, April 3, at properties where the number of registered hunters exceeds the spots avail- able. A youth hunter may be drawn for either one or both hunt days, depending on the number of appli- cants. All applicants will be noti- fied of the drawing results by mail. Applicants must possess a 2019 Youth Consolidated Hunting & Trapping License, a 2019 Non-Res- ident Youth Spring Turkey License with a gamebird habitat stamp privilege, or a Lifetime Compre- hensive Hunting License.
