Wolf Creek deer hunting change

July 02, 2010 at 03:00 PM

The IDNR has made a change in the archery deer hunting program beginning this fall at Wolf Creek State Park.  Hunters will no longer be required to apply for a week-long reservation as in previous years. 

Instead, hunters will be required to sign up for a free site hunting card prior to hunting.  The sign-in sheet will be located at the Eagle Creek State Recreation Area office (directly west of Wolf Creek State Park across the Findlay Bridge).  Hunters should be careful to sign the correct sheet for Wolf Creek State Park as there will also be a sign-in sheet for Eagle Creek State Recreation Area hunting.

This change will give hunters the opportunity to hunt without the pre-planning needed with the previous system.  Season dates will coincide with the statewide archery deer season and will be closed during the firearm deer season. 

All hunters are required to have a current hunting license, habitat stamp, and IDNR-issued archery deer permit.  Archery hunters at Wolf Creek State Park will be required to harvest a doe before harvesting an antlered deer (4 points or better). 

This requirement is intended to help manage the large deer population on and near Wolf Creek State Park. For more information on deer hunting opportunities and site regulations at Wolf Creek State Park, contact Eagle Creek State Recreation Area at 217/756-8260 or IDNR District Biologist Doug Brown at 217/345-2420.
