Deer reductions to close 21 Indiana state parks

Play

21 Indiana state parks will be closed temporarily for deer reductions by local hunters . They do this annually, Mike Mycroft, chief of natural resources for the Department of Natural Resources State Parks and Reservoirs, said.

“It’s mainly to manage the impact of high density deer herds on the native habitat throughout the parks,” Mycroft said.

The parks affected are Brown County, Chain O’Lakes, Charlestown, Clifty Falls, Fort Harrison, Harmonie, Indiana Dunes, Lincoln, McCormick’s Creek, Ouabache, Pokagon, Potato Creek, Prophetstown, Shades, Shakamak, Spring Mill, Summit Lake, Tippecanoe, Turkey Run, Versailles, and Whitewater Memo
