    Last year the Indiana Department of Natural Resources lifted their administrative ban on carrying pistols in state parks. This change will expire this year, 2007.

    Hearing to make the rule change permanent are scheduled for May 15, 2007 in Peru and May 16 in Mitchell. Comments can be sent to DNR in Indianapolis.

    I urge our Hoosier THR members to send their comments to:

    Hearing Officer
    Natural Resources Commission
    402 West Washington Street
    Room W272
    Indianapolis, Indiana 46204

    email: jkane@nrc.IN.gov

    ???

    I though this was due to executive order, and I had no idea that this would expire.

    I will certainly be checking out your links here. Thanks once again.

    I've read the link... Does this only apply carrying a self-defense handgun while hunting? So this does not affect the E.O. regarding carry in state parks when not hunting?

    Also the wording makes it sound like this only affects turkey season and bow season. Is that true? My self defense handgun is not deer-legal which would also prevent me from carrying during firearms season.

    Just trying to get my facts straight before I write an e-mail.

    edit: nevermind... I just needed to follow a few more links...

    more like posting and reading :)

    After e-mailing, I sent an e-mail to all my gun-friendly friends with this same info and part of my e-mail as a sample.

    It was my "15 minutes" for the cause this week.

    Thanks again Tejon to you and people like you who take the time to follow all the goins-on.

    Updates? Further Action?

    From http://www.in.gov/dnr/fishwild/about/rules.html
    Now that the public comment period is over, is there anything else that can be done? or is it time to wait patiently to see the outcome?

    Yes, write Daniels a letter in support of the rule change being made permanent.:)

    Thanks for your help.

    IndianaBoy, you move too fast for bureaucracy.:D Deep breathing, my friend.

    Go dry practice, we'll keep you updated.:D

    The admin change does not expire until September. I would not anticipate any action unti shortly after Labor Day.

    Sorry I am too late to officially voice my opinion. I go to a local park all the time to play disc golf...it would be nice if I was able to legally carry. I eagerly await the results.
