Pheasants are released for put-and-take hunting at Atterbury, Glendale, Pigeon River (West of State Route 3), Tri-County, Willow Slough and Winamac Fish and Wildlife areas and Roush Lake. The hunts begin November 19, and typically run for the next nine days. Hunts will not be available on a first-come-first-serve reservation method at the property, as in past years. Put-and-take hunts are $15 per person and the bag limit is two birds of either sex. A hunter filling his or her bag limit in the put-and-take hunt may not take any more pheasants that day.

Hunters will be able to select the date, property, and property location for their hunt. Hunting reservations will be available until noon on the day prior to the hunt date.

Applicants need to supply their hunting license number in order to register. A valid hunting license and Indiana game bird habitat stamp privilege are required to hunt pheasant.

Pheasant hunters should wear a solid fluorescent orange outer garment such as a coat, vest, coveralls or hat.

The DNR recommends pheasant hunters use a 12 or20 gauge shotgun loaded with shells holding 4 to 6 size shot.
