IN.gov Launches Harvest Reporting Suite for Deer and Fall Turkey

INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is utilizing an online harvest reporting system developed by IN.gov to help streamline the current harvest reporting process.


Indiana hunters now have the ability to report their deer and fall turkey harvest using a computer, smart phone, or tablet that has Internet access without having to take the deer or turkey to a check station for physical inspection. The online service (http://www.in.gov/dnr/fishwild/7365.htm) utilizes responsive design architecture that allows the application to render dynamically based on the user's screen resolution. This allows the site to be easily viewed using a wide variety of smart phones and handheld devices.

Hunters checking their deer or turkey using a computer, smart phone, or tablet simply need to write the CheckIN Game confirmation number on the temporary transportation tag of the harvested deer or turkey. An enhancement has also been specifically created for law enforcement to allow them to enter the confirmation number of the harvest to check the validity of the harvested game.

"The CheckIN Game system allows hunters to quickly check in their game from the convenience of their home or directly in the field using their mobile device," said Mark Reiter, DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife director. "This free online system is a big step forward in giving hunters more options to check in their game."

CheckIN Game will be available throughout the duration of deer and fall turkey hunting seasons.
