Deer Hunting

New Deer Harvest Reporting Requirement

Beginning with the 2015-2016 season EVERY purchaser of a deer tag(s) must report their harvest, even if they were unsuccessful, or if they did not hunt.

For successful hunters, the report must be made within 30 days of harvesting a deer or by January 31, whichever date is first. Unsuccessful hunters (or those who did not hunt) must report no harvest or did not hunt, respectively, by January 31.

Harvest reports can be submitted ONLINE, or by mail to the address printed on the tag. link opens in new windowWatch this video for more information on how to report your deer tag (YouTube).

Tag holders who did not report will be charged a non-reporting fee of $21.60 (added to license purchases beginning with the 2017-2018 season).
