(UNDATED) - 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.

"The cards give us trends in hunter use and in harvests and are important in managing our resource management units," said Ginger Murphy, deputy director for stewardship, DNR Division of State Parks.

Hunters should complete a card every time they visit one of the eight properties to hunt.

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.

Hunter cards must be completely filled out, including a phone number, mailing address and email address for those who have one. Winners will be called or emailed. Hunters of all ages can participate, and hunters can enter more than once during each season.

The DNR Division of State Parks manages recreational areas along these reservoirs and permits hunting in designated areas. The prize program does not apply to state fish & wildlife areas.
