Those participating in the state's fall turkey season are encouraged to report their harvests through the Pennsylvania Game Commission's new online system.

To report a turkey harvest online, go to the Game Commission's website (www.pgc.state.pa.us), click on the blue box with rotating script in the upper right-hand corner of the website, select "Harvest Reporting," then click on the "Start Here" button at the bottom of the page, choose the method of validating license information, and click on the checkbox for the harvest tag being reported. A series of options will appear for a hunter to report a harvest. After filling in the harvest information, click on the "Continue" button to review the report and then hit the "Submit" button to complete the report. Failing to hit the "Submit"” button will result in a harvest report not being completed. Responses to all harvest questions are required.

Roe noted that hunters still have the option to file harvest report postcards, which are included as tear-out sheets in the annual digest they received when they purchased their licenses.

"We certainly are encouraging hunters to use the online reporting system, which will ensure that their harvest is recorded and save the Game Commission money on postage," Roe said. "Either way, the more important point is that all hunters who harvest a turkey report it to the agency."
