Game Check

Hunters now have three options for automated game check. They may check their deer or turkey:

  1. On the Internet at ohiogamecheck.com
  2. By telephone at 1-877-TAG-ITOH (1-877-824-4864) - This option is only available to those who are required to purchase a deer or turkey permit to hunt deer or turkeys. Hunters checking their harvest as a landowner cannot use the telephone option.
  3. At Geauga Bow
