Using the new check system

Published: Sat, May 7, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m.

Hunters still must report their harvest of turkeys, but they no longer are required to take their turkey to a check station for physical inspection. Hunters will have three options to complete the automated game check:

On the Internet at wildohio.com or ohiogamecheck.com.

By telephone at 877-TAG-ITOH (877-824-4864) — This option is available only to those who are required to purchase a turkey permit to hunt turkeys.

At all license agents.

Game-check transactions will be available online and by telephone seven days a week and during holidays.

Landowner hunters who are not required to purchase a spring turkey permit must use the Internet or any license agent to check their turkey. Hunters who tag their turkey as a landowner harvest cannot use the phone-in method. All authorized license-sales agents also will check in your game. Find a list of authorized license agents online at www.ohiodnr.com.

They are fools to think everyone will report their turkey killings.I know cheaper but not as accurate as having to show the dead turkeys. In Pa. they have had a mail cvheck-in for years. Does it give them an accurate count of killed turkeys? NO. Because not everyone sends in their cards like they are suppose to. If anyone can get out of the woods without tagging a bird I feel they will, just so they can hunt again
