INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Several Indiana state parks will temporarily close for certain upcoming days so deer management hunts can take place.

Each hunt runs two days. The first is on Monday and Tuesday, and the second is on Monday, Nov. 30, and Tuesday, Dec. 1. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says participating state parks will close to the general public on the evening before each of the two hunts.

Participating are Brown County, Chain O’Lakes, Charlestown, Fort Harrison, Harmonie, Lincoln, McCormick’s Creek, Ouabache, Pokagon, Potato Creek, Prophetstown, Shades, Spring Mill, Turkey Run, Versailles, and Whitewater Memorial state parks, as well as Trine State Recreation Area.

These state park properties will re-open the morning after each two-day hunt. All Indiana state park properties not mentioned above will operate under normal hours.

Only hunters selected from a draw may participate at any site.
