Mandatory reporting of all deer and turkey harvests through Alabama’s Game Check system is now required by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR). Hunters will have 48 hours to report their harvest through the recently updated Outdoor Alabama mobile app, online at www.outdooralabama.com, or by phone at 1-800-888-7690.
Hunters are encouraged to utilize Game Check via the updated mobile app or go online to report their harvest. Hunters will need to manually update the Outdoor Alabama app through the Apple or Android app stores or reinstall it to make sure they have the most recent version.
Also new for the 2016-17 hunting season is the introduction of the Conservation Identification Number (CID). The 6-digit CID number is unique to each hunter and can be used to purchase future licenses, Harvest Information Program (HIP) permits, and report deer and turkey harvests. Unlike an annual hunting license or Hunter’s Exempt License Privilege (H.E.L.P.) number, the CID number will never change, making it easier to use and remember.
