HOW TO REPORT YOUR HARVEST
BEFORE YOU GO HUNTING
Obtain a hunting license (unless exempt) and harvest record. Two types of harvest records are acceptable, a digital record or a printed form. Digital record keeping may be done through the Game Check feature
found within the free MDWFP app. Register in the app and it will be your official harvest record. If you prefer a printed form, you can download the form here.
WHEN YOU HARVEST A TURKEY
The reporting process must begin BEFORE you move the turkey from its harvest location. Using the Game Check feature on the MDWFP app, click the REPORT TURKEY button and complete and submit an entry. If there is no cellular coverage where you hunt, the app will automatically upload your harvest when coverage resumes.
Using the printed form method, the reporting process must begin BEFORE you move the turkey from its harvest location. The printed form method can be done on a simple piece of paper and does not require an official game check form. You must record your name, license number, address, phone number, and date of the harvest on the printed form. You will also need to know the beard length, spur length, and the county of harvest when you report your harvest through the MDWFP website at mwdfp.com/gamecheck or by calling 1-800-BE-SMART.
AFTER YOUR HUNT
Using the Game Check feature on the MDWFP app, you have no additional requirements. Using the printed form method, you must report the harvest through the MDWFP website at mwdfp.com/gamecheck or by calling 1-800-BE-SMART before 10 p.m. on the day of harvest.
THERE ARE THREE WAYS TO REPORT:
Once you complete the harvest-reporting process, you will receive a confirmation number. This number must be documented on the harvest record.
