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

Indiana hunters now have the ability to report their turkey harvest using a computer or a mobile device that has Internet access without having to take the turkey to a check station for physical inspection. This online service utilizes responsive design architecture that allows the application to render dynamically based on the user’s screen resolution.

Hunters checking their turkey online need to write the CheckIN Game confirmation number on the temporary transportation tag of the harvested 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 and eliminate the hunters from having to print a receipt of confirmation.

CheckIN Game will be available this weekend during the two-day youth season and when the regular spring turkey hunting season begins on April 25. This fall, CheckIN Game is expected to be expanded to include checking in white-tailed deer and fall-season turkey.
