I'm a Buckeye that has moved all my hunting to Kentucky. One of the reasons is the telecheck system. You call an 800 number, enter a few items: species, sex, antler, public or private land, and county. You get back a number. You have to keep that number associated with the deer when you give it to a processor or taxidermist. Simple, easy-- everyone has to do it. It beats having to schlep a deer around looking for a check station that's open.
A lot of guys in KY don't like the telecheck. They think it lends itself to cheating. The answer to that is that if you're not inclined to call in to a 800 number, what makes anyone think you'd drive all the way into town to check it? Additionally, there's now a website where you can see what you and all your neighbors have checked in. You see your neighbor pulling out a big buck on Saturday and on Monday, you check the site and see he's called it in as doe. There's a tip line, and it gets used a lot now.
Living in Cincinnati, I have the option of IN, OH, and KY all within a half-hour of the house. I have not hunted IN in 20 years and my last Ohio buck was in '98.
