Reporting your Wild Turkey Harvest is now Required by Law

Wild Turkey

What is SC Game Check?

SC Game Check is an electronic harvest reporting system through the new Go Outdoors SC system designed to track wild turkey harvest on a daily, county-by-county basis. SC Game Check is required by law and all turkey hunters in South Carolina must report their harvest by midnight on the day of harvest. Reporting your harvest is quick, easy, and free through the new Go Outdoors SC app, website portal, toll-free phone number, or, new this year, hunters can report their harvest by text.

Why SC Game Check?

SC Game Check will provide detailed daily harvest totals and trends throughout the season. It will also provide harvest data on private land vs. public land. This, in addition to the harvest data and hunter effort data received from post-season mail surveys, will aid SCDNR in evaluating the impact of season frameworks and help provide recommendations for regulatory and legislative decisions and allow for more adaptive approaches to managing wild turkeys into the future. Additionally, the reporting system, along with the already required physical tagging of wild turkeys, will foster and enhance bag limit compliance and provide an additional tool for enforcement of limits and regulations.
