Indiana will now require hunting guides to be licensed and file a monthly report with the Department of Natural Resources.

The new rule is part of a law passed by the Indiana General Assembly this year which also includes penalties for hunting guides who violate the law.

DNR representative Linnea Petercheff says the license will establish the first statewide regulations for hunting guides.

“Prior to this law taking effect, there was not a license required for a hunting guide,” says Petercheff. “Because of this new law, if there is a hunting guide that would transport an individual on private property to hunt and that landowner has not given permission to do so, that is now a Class A misdemeanor.”

Petercheff says the new licenses will be similar to fishing guide licenses that are already required.

The license will cost $100 annually.
