Bama has no required check on a state wide basis. But the WMAs require you to do a check in and weight in during the few two day either sex hunts and the one day youth only hunts. On any other WMA check in is not required but you are required to fill out a form at the check stations to legally remove the deer from the WMA. Not a real easy thing to enforce and as far as I know no attempt to do so is made.

This will be our first season in my memory to require a limit on bucks or a point count. We now can kill only three bucks per season down from a buck a day as far back as I can remember and the third buck MUST have four points on one side minimum. We are required to annonate on our license each buck killed before moving it this year as well.

Missouri requires you to check deer or turkey kills either over the phone or on your computer. They want the hunter's Conservation ID number, county the animal was killed in and whether it was a buck, doe, or fawn.

South Dakota would like you to send in 2 teeth along withe a sticker that is attached to your license. It is not required but the GFP hounds you for it if you don't.

In Texas you have to tag the deer, but aren't required to check it in if hunting on private land. I don't know about WMA's. Since I hunt on land that is part of the state MLD program we have to keep a log that includes dressed weight and antler measurements on bucks.

Massachusetts does, you have 48 hours to get your dressed deer to a check station from the time you make your kill.

Here in New York we are required to phone-in the information about the deer we take!

I don't know if it's still so or not, but in the Southern Tier, people who took a deer used to have to take their deer in to a "check station" where the game biologists would take the info from the deer as well as info provided by the taker!

In Indiana, the kill tag is good to get you to a DNR approved check in station for a transportation seal. In Michigan, where I live no check in is required; therefore, the DNR estimates of deer killed, etc., are all done using the SWAG method. I'm not sure our DNR knows anything about kill numbers!

I must have missed something in the Oklahoma regs but have yet to be required to dress a deer before checking it in. I will have to look in to that. We have a doe only season next week end and will check it out before then. Looking foward to trying out my 44 mag marlin 1894 on deer. I got it at a gun show a few weeks back.
