Check In Your Deer, Wild Turkey Or River Otter

(UNDATED) – The Indiana CheckIN Game system allows hunters and trappers to check in their harvested game from any device connected to the internet.

Hunters will receive a confirmation number that must be written down on a temporary transportation tag for the harvested game species (turkey, deer, or river otter). 

Be sure to check your information to ensure accuracy before submitting the check-in.

Remember, hunters don’t need to login to an account to check in game this fall. Have your Customer ID handy.

To view all game that was previously checked in with the CheckIN Game system, hunters will need to set up an account through our online system. You can purchase licenses, check in game, complete your HIP registration and make a donation through your account. 

Hunters still have the option of visiting traditional check stations where a confirmation number will be provided to hunters to place on their temporary transportation tag. There is also a phone-in option at 1-800-419-1326; however, there is a $3 charge for this service (Visa or Mastercard only).
