Indiana is home to beautiful waterways and parks for Hoosiers to experience the great outdoors and take advantage of various hunting and fishing seasons.

For hunters and anglers, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources offers the Indiana Hunting and Trapping Guide and the Indiana Fishing Guide. These downloadable guides provide information about current regulations, season dates, bag limits, license requirements and cost, legal hunting hours, approved equipment and public hunting and fishing locations.

Hunting and fishing trips are also great fun for the whole family. Visit the DNR website for youth safety recommendations, free kids days and interactive maps to find a hunting or fishing location close to home or further away.

Funds collected through licenses are used for programs such as wildlife management and research, habitat management and restoration, land acquisition, public access, shooting ranges, fish stocking, DNR law enforcement and more.

With an abundance of wildlife and wilderness throughout the state, now is a great time to get out and enjoy nature.
