Sign up to hunt on one of Indiana’s participating private estates

INDIANA – Are you looking for a new place to hunt?

The Indiana Private Lands Access (IPLA) program has a new self-service login system for hunters who want to hunt on private property. Small game, deer, and waterfowl hunters can view available locations, photos, and maps, as well as property rules.

Search windows can last up to three days, depending on when you sign up. The system reboots at 8 pm ET on the last night of each 3-day cycle. Hunters can register for the same property only twice in a row. Be sure to check in early during each window.

Game bird (pheasant and quail) and turkey hunts are still managed through the reserved hunt lottery system.

As the IPLA continues to work with private owners, it is likely that more properties will be added.
