The DNR online CheckIN Game system now offers hunters the option to report their harvested game from any telephone.
who use this option will talk to a live person who will enter their
information into the online CheckIN Game system. The phone-in option is
available 24 hours a day, seven days a week through the fall turkey and
all deer seasons. The number is 1-800-419-1326.
Because of staffing
costs, a $3 fee will be charged for each CheckIN telephone transaction.
Payment can be made by Visa or Mastercard only.
The online system and
on-site check stations remain free options for hunters to check in
game. To access CheckIN Game online, visit checkingame.dnr.IN.gov.
using the phone-in option, hunters should have their customer ID and
all harvest information ready. Customer ID numbers can be found on any
hunting, fishing or trapping license. Lifetime license holders and those
who do not have their customer ID will be able to look up their number
through the phone system.
Once a transaction is completed, hunters
will be given a confirmation number, which must be written on their
temporary transportation tag.
“The new phone-in option allows hunters who do not have Internet access the ability to check-in their game from home or in the field with a mobile phone,” said Mark Reiter, Division of Fish & Wildlife director. “This makes check-in easy and convenient for all hunters.”
