Three options for registering deer kills

MADISON, Wis. — Tagging rules have changed, but registration requirements have not. Lucky hunters are still required to register their harvested deer electronically by 5 p.m. the day after being recovered.

“Since its launch in 2014, most hunters have adjusted well to using the electronic registration options,” said Kevin Wallenfang, big game ecologist for the Department of Natural Resources. “The simplicity and convenience has resulted in high compliance of registration requirements, but we also continue to offer walk-in registration opportunities at hundreds of locations around the state.”

Hunters have three options for registering:

— Online at GameReg.

— By phone at 1-844-426-3734, or 1-844-GAME-REG.

— At a walk-in registration site where the process will be completed electronically. A full list of registration sites can be found on the department web site. Local registration sites include the C&R Bar in Aurora and Rocque’s 8-Hi Club in Goodman.

The GameReg system will prompt hunters to answer a series of questions, beginning with the deer tag number and the hunter’s date of birth.
