-- The 2009-2010 DNR Hunting and Trapping Guide is now available on the DNR website, dnr.IN.gov.
Within the next week or two, the guide will be available, free of charge, at most DNR properties, various sporting goods stores, hunting license vendors and other locations around the state.
The 44-page publication cover shows a hunter participating in a deer reduction hunt last winter at Tippecanoe River State Park.
In addition to providing hunting and trapping rules and regulations, the guide includes articles on the 10 unwritten rules of hunting; why Kade Carter, 6th-grade son of DNR director Robert E. Carter Jr., likes to hunt; and how science plays a role in determining hunting rules and seasons.
The guide is a must, not only for veteran Hoosier hunters and trappers but also for those new to the state, and is a fitting addition to any neighborhood welcome package.
