INDIANAPOLIS - 12/13/2013

Since its inception, The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) online CheckIN system has checked over 105,000 harvested game. Hunters who are without an internet connection can use the CheckIN Game phone service.

"The phone-in option allows hunters that do not have internet access the ability to check in their harvest from home or in the field with a mobile phone,” said Mark Reiter, DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife director. “This makes checking in easy and convenient for all hunters.”

Indiana hunters have the ability to report their deer and fall turkey harvest by calling in game using their phones without having to take the deer or turkey to a check station for physical inspection. The CheckIN Game phone service number is 800-419-1326 and will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week throughout deer season. The cost of service is $3 per check. In order to use the CheckIN Game phone service, hunters will need:

1. Pen and paper to write the confirmation number

2. CID or Lifetime license number, found on your hunting license

3. Visa or MasterCard to pay for the service

Hunters registering their deer or turkey using the CheckIN Game phone option need to write the CheckIN Game confirmation number on the temporary transportation tag. Law enforcement will utilize this confirmation number to check the validity of the game.

In addition to using the CheckIN Game phone option, hunters are also able to register online. The CheckIN Game online option is free to hunters and has been updated for the 2013-2014 hunting season with a few enhancements such as the ability to view previously checked game. Due to the overwhelming smartphone traffic, over 50 percent of website visits, the online interface has been optimized for mobile devices as well.
