A big change is coming to big game check-in procedures. When purchasing the appropriate big game license, a Harvest Log will print instead of a temporary kill tag. By the end of the calendar day of harvest, all big game animals (turkey, deer, bear) must be checked in.
The hunter must check the animals in one of three ways:
Evidence of the big game animal’s species and sex must be available for inspection by TWRA personnel until the animal is checked in. All big game animals taken to taxidermists or to meat processors must be accompanied by documentation on approved TWRA forms or TWRA mobile application.
See an example of a harvest report confirmation page
In addition to reporting harvests, when you use the TWRA's mobile web application, you can also use the harvest diary to log your special moments and experiences while hunting as well. It's a great way to record your memories about your experiences all in one place!
More infomation about the new big game harvest check-in procudures will be available soon. Please check back on the TWRA website or watch our Facebook page for updates.
