Indiana Pheasant Habitat Incentive Program

The Indiana Division of Fish and Wildlife has designated priority areas to focus on pheasant habitat management. A professional wildlife biologist will provide each eligible landowner with a habitat management plan for their property. The pheasant habitat development program will then provide up to 90% of the cost of the recommended practices. Additionally, landowners willing to enroll their land in federal land retirement programs will be eligible for a onetime signing incentive.
