Anglers who reel in a large fish can now submit their Fish of The Year and Record Fish entries to the DNR online.

A new online form allows anglers to fill out data quickly and email a photo and other documentation. It is at www.wildlife.IN.gov/9453.htm.

"It allows anglers to enter right from the field from any internet connected device," said Michelle Cain, wildlife information specialist with the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife. "We're hoping that by making the process simpler we will get more entries this year."

Indiana tracks big fish two ways. The State Record Fish program documents the largest fish by species ever caught in Indiana. The Fish of the Year program documents the largest fish by species caught in a given year.

Landowners experiencing deer damage to crops, forested land or landscaping can get help from hunters through the DNR's Hunters Helping Farmers (HHF) program.

In order to minimize such damage, the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife recommends that such landowners start a hunting program during the regular deer-hunting seasons.

Landowners and hunters interested in participating in HHF can apply now through Aug. 30 at www.wildlife.IN.gov/5452.htm.
