To fill out deer registration forms online, visit the Department of Wildlife for the state where the deer was tagged, and then go to the electronic registration page. Fill out the form by entering the required information and answering any questions. The exact procedure and the questions on the form vary depending on the state, but the procedure typically follows these steps.
Deer registration forms typically ask for the hunter's identification number and date of birth. Next, the forms require information on the kill, including the date it occurred, the type of weapon used, the location, and whether the kill occurred on public or private land. The hunter must also enter information about the deer, including whether it's a buck or anterless deer, and whether it's an adult deer or a fawn.
After registering a deer online, you receive a confirmation code. You must write this number on the carcass tag to finish the registration. The confirmation code provides information on the kill.
Deer registration is mandatory in many areas and must be completed on the same day as the kill. Hunters can also register deer by phone or at registration stations, which offer phones and computers for those forms of registration. Regardless of the method, registration requires the same information.
