Corrections to the printed 2018-19 Hunting & Trapping Guide
Start Date: 9/4/2018
Event Description:
Indiana hunters and trappers should note the following errors, corrections and clarifications in the print version of the 2018-19 Hunting & Trapping Guide. All have been corrected in the online version, which can be viewed at

— On page 14, the youth free hunting dates are incorrect. The correct dates for 2018 are Sept. 8-9 and Nov. 24-25.

— On page 25, the date for using firearms in deer reduction zones is incorrect. Firearms can be used in reduction zones to count toward the reduction zone bag limit from Nov. 17, 2018 – Jan. 31, 2019 in locations where local ordinances allow the use of firearms. Those correct dates are listed on several other pages, including in the reduction zone explanation on page 24.

— On page 25, under Rifles, second column, first full paragraph, the language “with a minimum 16-inch barrel” should be deleted. There is no longer a requirement that rifles have a minimum 16-inch barrel.

— On page 32, in the squirrel section, the guide incorrectly states that red squirrels are a protected species in Indiana. Red (piney) squirrels are an exempted species and may be taken or possessed without a special permit.

— On page 43, in the furbearer section, the regulation states that “Traps may not be set prior to 8 a.m. on opening day of trapping season.” The regulation that set starting and ending times for trapping was removed in administrative code earlier this year; therefore, the trapping of furbearers and river otters can start at 12:01 a.m. on the opening day of the season. The start and end dates for trapping furbearers remain the same.

— On page 46, No. 21, Wilbur Wright Fish & Wildlife Area, the phone number is incorrect. It should be 260-468-2165.

— Also on page 46, Nos. 3 and 10, Ferdinand State Forest and Pike State Forest, respectively, have a new phone number. The new phone number for both Ferdinand and Pike state forests is 812-827-2857.
