Public Hunting Areas

The map below shows the general location of public hunting areas in Indiana. The numbers on the map correspond to the chart below that lists each property and a phone number.

The DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife manages 25 fish and wildlife areas that have a combined 135,800 acres of public hunting opportunities. Some of the fish and wildlife areas manage satellite units with hundreds of additional acres open to hunting.

The DNR Division of Forestry manages 14 properties, all open to hunting. State forests represent some of the largest properties in the system with four of them — Morgan-Monroe, Clark, Harrison-Crawford and Yellowwood — having more than 23,000 acres apiece.

Eight reservoir properties under management of the DNR Division of State Parks & Reservoirs add even more public land hunting opportunities.

Indiana also is home to several federally managed sites that allow hunting — the Hoosier National Forest, and Big Oaks, Muscatatuck and Patoka River national wildlife refuges.

For more information on areas in Indiana that are open to public hunting, visit the Where to Hunt page on the DNR website at IN.gov/dnr/fishwild/5427.htm.
