-- Hunters during the spring and youth turkey season now have the option of reporting harvest information using a free online system through CheckIN Game.
Hunters can report their turkey harvest through a computer, tablet or wide variety of smart phones and handheld devices without having to take the turkey to a designated check station for physical inspection.
However, hunters still have the option of taking their turkey to a designated check station.
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. The free online system gives hunters more options to check in their game.
Hunters who use CheckIN Game will get an electronic confirmation receipt with a confirmation number. They will need to write the number on the temporary transportation tag for the turkey. Indiana Conservation Officers will use the confirmation number to check validity of the turkey. While printing the confirmation receipt is not necessary, hunters may want to do so for their records.
Hunters must have their customer ID number ready when using the CheckIN Game system. The numbers can be found on spring turkey licenses or any hunting, trapping or fishing license from Indiana.
Lifetime license holders will have the option of looking up this number in the CheckIN Game system. Hunters exempted by law from needing a license can also check in their game through this online system by entering some basic information.
To access CheckIN Game visit hunting.IN.gov/7365.htm.
Directions for using the system will be posted on the CheckIN Game website. The user-friendly design has simple drop-down lists and the automatic fill of information which allows hunters to quickly and easily check their game. CheckIN Game is now available. This fall, CheckIN Game likely will be expanded to include checking in white-tailed deer and fall-season turkey.
