Yes you can get splunk to listen for UDP connections on port 514 if you want (go into Settings >Data Inputs >UDP).
However It is highly recommended that you use a third part syslog receiver. I have used syslog-ng https://www.syslog-ng.com/products/ successfully on windows before but there are other free third-party ones too.
