Basics

What do I need to apply?

  • A valid hunting license for the species you intend to hunt for that season/equipment.
  • A valid email address for confirmation of application submission.

How do I know if my application is complete?

  • You will receive a confirmation email sent to the email address you provided.
  • After you have submitted your application, PRINT or SAVE your confirmation page. Once you have applied, you can double-check if the application was submitted successfully by logging back into the reserved hunt system. If a hunt choice is still in the drop-down box, you did not successfully apply. The system will not allow you to apply for the same hunt more than once. So, if the hunt shows up in your drop-down box, then you need to apply.
  • The website will have you add the hunt you apply for to the “Shopping Cart,” and you will be asked to “Check Out” and “Place Order,” even though there is no fee. You will need to place your order in the cart to submit your application.

Other Important Information

  • Once you have submitted your hunt application, you cannot change it. If you need to update your contact information, you may do so by logging into the reserved hunt system.

Results

  • Results are typically posted within two weeks after the application period has closed.
  • To view draw results, go to https://secure.in.gov/apps/dnr/portal/#/home, log in to your account, and select “View Registrations” in your online dashboard.
  • If you do not have an account, please select “click here” to see the results of your registered hunts on the far right “Reserved Hunts” box. You will need your customer ID and date of birth.

2020 Spring Turkey Reserved Hunts

The online method is the only way to apply.

Applicants must possess a valid hunting license for the species they wish to hunt.
The application process is now consolidated into the online services website along with Licenses, Check-In game, and HIP registration. An online account is not required to apply, so there is no need to log in.
Please note that in this new system, hunts without fees to register will follow the same process as those with a fee. For hunts with no fee to register, you still will be asked to Add to Cart, Proceed to Checkout, and Place Order. If the transaction total is $0, you will not be asked to enter credit card info.
