Hunters at eight reservoir properties who return a completed hunter card at DNR check-in stations will be entered to win prizes. The properties are Salamonie, Mississinewa, Patoka, Brookville, Monroe, Hardy, Cecil M. Harden and Cagles Mill lakes. The new “Check-In-Win” program is an effort to encourage hunters to turn in hunter cards at the end of their hunts.
The cards contain information that is valuable to the DNR, including what animals the hunters harvested and what animals they saw while hunting. Hunters can win a $25 Fish & Wildlife Gift Certificate that can be used to purchase a combo hunting/fishing license, an annual entrance pass for state parks and reservoirs and state forest recreation areas, a $25 lake permit for boating access on DNR properties, a $25 camping gift card, and more. Prize drawings will be held after spring turkey season, after deer firearms season and after waterfowl season.
