Applications are now being accepted for spring turkey hunting opportunities on private property through the Access Program Providing Land Enhancements (APPLE) program.
APPLE hunts are allocated through the online reserved hunt system. The only way to apply for these hunts is online at on.IN.gov/reservedhunt. Hunters may apply for only one hunting period.
Applications are accepted until February 19. Draw result notifications will be emailed within two weeks of the application deadline. All regulations and bag limits apply.
APPLE offers financial incentives to landowners who allow controlled public access hunting on their private lands. Wildlife biologists also work with these private landowners to establish and improve habitat.
