CheckIN Game set up for deer, turkey seasons

Deer and turkey hunters will have the option this fall to use the online system CheckIN Game that was developed for the Department of Natural Resources to help streamline the current harvest reporting process.

Hunters can report their deer and turkey harvest using the convenience of a computer, smart phone or tablet that has Internet access without having to take the animal to a check station for physical inspection.

“The CheckIN Game system allows hunters to quickly report 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.”

More than 2,100 turkey hunters took advantage of CheckIN Game when it was launched during the spring turkey season.

Hunters using CheckIN Game need to write the confirmation number they are provided on the temporary tag they have placed on their harvested deer or turkey. An enhancement to the system has been created that allows Indiana Conservation Officers to enter a confirmation number to check the validity of harvested game and eliminates the need for hunters to have a printed receipt of confirmation.

CheckIN Game will be available beginning with the urban zone deer season that opened Sept. 15 in designated areas of Indiana and for all other deer and turkey seasons. For a list of hunting season dates, see Page 16 of the DNR’s 2012 Indiana Hunting & Trapping Guide at

CheckIN Game was developed for the DNR by, the official website of the state of Indiana and a service of the Indiana Office of Technology.

For those hunters who prefer the traditional check stations, more than 450 sites across the state will provide the service for reporting either deer or turkey. A complete county-by-county list of check stations can be found on pages 38 to 43 in the DNR’s 2012 Indiana Hunting & Trapping Guide at
