Ohio deer hunters can check deer via smartphones

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Deer hunters in Ohio can use their smartphones to report harvested white-tailed deer through an enhanced state website beginning this weekend.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says the website has been enhanced to make it mobile-friendly. Valid email addresses and phone numbers are required to use the site on a mobile device.

The website is available for all hunters to report the deer they harvest. Game-check transactions are available online and by telephone seven days a week, including holidays.

A new tagging procedure administered by the department's Division of Wildlife requires hunters to make their own game tag to attach to a deer. All hunters must then report their deer harvest using the automated game-check system.

Ohio hunters checked 218,910 deer in the 2012-2013 season.
