Judge Rules Indiana Can't Block Hunting Preserves

A judge says Indiana can't block hunting preserves from operating.

Deer farmers have been battling the Department of Natural Resources in court and at the statehouse for eight years over an attempt to ban enclosed deer-hunting areas.

A Harrison County judge says the D-N-R doesn't have that authority.

Opponents label the preserves "canned hunting" and charge it's cruelty to animals, giving hunters a free shot at animals who don't have room to roam.
