Select Indiana state parks will close temporarily to allow for controlled deer reductions in the coming weeks. The dates for the temporary closings are Nov. 16 and 17, and Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. The state parks affected are Clifty Falls, Fort Harrison, Harmonie, Lincoln, McCormick’s Creek, Ouabache, Pokagon, Potato Creek, Prophetstown, Shades, Shakamak, Tippecanoe, Turkey Run and Whitewater Memorial. These state parks will close to the general public the evening before each of the two efforts and reopen the morning after each two-day reduction. Only individual hunters drawn last September and those hunters they listed on their applications may participate in the hunts. There will be no standby drawings this year.
