• Panel approves changes in Indiana deer hunting rules

    September 22, 2011 No comments

    A state panel has approved changes to Indiana deer hunting rules that will go into effect in the 2012 season.

    The Indiana Natural Resources Commission approved the changes Tuesday.

    The changes include proposals to expand the state’s deer-hunting seasons and legalize the use of crossbows during archery season.

    The changes still require approval by the state attorney general and the governor before taking effect.

    Indiana wants to reduce the state’s deer population because the animals eat crops and native plant life and cause a large number of collisions with cars.
