Massachusetts has eliminated online game registration for the fall 2012 hunting season.
Massachusetts hunters are reminded that they still must tag their game immediately upon harvesting the animal and must check all harvested deer, turkey, bear, and furbearers at a traditional check station location. To help get the word to all hunters, please tell your hunting friends .
Check station locations can be found in two ways; check the MassWildlife link at www.mass.gov/dfwele/dfw/recreation/hunting/check_station_home.htm or call a MassWildlife District office in Ayer, (978) 772-2145; Belchertown, (413) 323-7221; Bourne, (508) 759-3406; Dalton, (413) 684-1646; or West Boylston (508) 835-3607.
As always, game can be checked at MassWildlife District Offices. Online game harvest reporting will begin with the 2013 Spring Turkey season.
