Indiana Hunters Disagree on Proposed Rule Changes

High-powered rifles could be allowed for deer hunting in Indiana, to the dismay of some of the state’s hunters.

About 260,000 hunters are having difficulty finding a common perspective in Indiana. A new rule proposal could allow for high-powered rifles for Indiana hunters.

A portion of Indiana hunters claim the high-powered rifles are just as safe as current weapons. They believe the new rule would allow for a greater variety of weapons to choose from for hunting deer.

The other portion believe that the longer distances these guns can reach will make hunting too easy. Hunters would have a huge advantage and deer population could suffer greatly.

Additionally, hunting would likely continue to be banned in suburban areas, which the Indiana Deer Hunters Association is working to change.
