From the Pennsylvania Game Commission
-- This spring, Pennsylvania's spring gobbler season features a new toll-free telephone method of reporting harvests. The Interactive Voice Response harvest reporting telephone number is (855)724-8681.
The new number is intended to make it easier for license buyers to report required harvests since harvest reporting rates have declined.
Hunters who use the toll-free number to submit a harvest report will receive a confirmation number which they should keep as proof of reporting.
When they call, hunters should have their Customer Identification Number-their hunting license number-and field harvest tag information. Multiple harvests can be reported in a single call. Hunters are asked to speak clearly and distinctly when reporting harvests, especially when providing the Wildlife Management Unit number and letter.
Hunters and trappers can use the telephone reporting system during the 2011-12 seasons for deer, turkey, bobcat and fisher. Elk and bear hunters still will be required to present their harvest to check stations.
Other harvest reporting methods remain in place, both online reporting through the agency's website at www.pgc.state.pa.us and using pre-paid postage cards from the annual Pennsylvania Hunting and Trapping digest which is provided free to each license buyer.
