  1. Indiana DNR Offering Quail, Pheasant Incentives

    GARY, IN-In an effort to help restore and rebuild the state's pheasant and bobwhite quail habitat, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has developed habitat priority areas to focus efforts in developing, enhancing and maintaining habitat for the birds. Landowners within these selected habitat priority counties and townships will be eligible to apply for a one-time signing incentive for enrollment in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) CRP-CP33, Habitat Buffers for Upland Birds.

    The signing incentive can be up to 120 percent of the average soil rental rate and is in addition to any signing incentive payments provided by the USDA.

    Interested landowners can take advantage of this limited time offer by calling the appropriate priority area biologist to discuss habitat management on their property. The biologist will prepare a management plan for each acceptable parcel and determine the total amount of incentive payments the landowner might be eligible to receive.

    To be eligible for the incentive payments, a priority area biologist must approve the habitat practice or practice enrollment prior to implementation. Payments will be made after the work has been completed and inspected by the priority area biologist or their designated representative.

    A detailed map of the DNR's pheasant priority areas is available at www.in.gov/dnr/fishwild/hunt/phhabitat.pdf
