Is there a fee associated with reporting my harvest?No, the Go Outdoors SC app is provided free of charge, as is reporting on the SCDNR website or by phone.
Does the Go Outdoors SC app capture and record my location?
No, you can allow the Go Outdoors SC app to access your location for full functionality of certain tools in the app (sunrise/sunset, tides, feeding times, etc.), but the SC Game Check portion of the app does not capture, record or transmit your location.
What if I downloaded the Go Outdoors SC app and set up my licenses before I purchased or requested my turkey tags?This is not a problem. Once you get your tags, go to My Licenses and tap your name. If your turkey tags don’t automatically show up in your list of privileges, tap the Sync button at the bottom of the screen to refresh the app and connect with the current license data.
Do I have to use the same reporting method for all of my harvest reports?
No, you can use all four reporting methods interchangeably, as the mobile app, web portal, texting and phone system are all linked together.
What if I don't have cellular service when attempting to submit a harvest report on the Go Outdoors SC app?
You will still be able to use the app and log your harvest report. Once you regain cell service, the mobile app will automatically submit your harvest report and generate a confirmation number. Additionally, you have until midnight on the day of harvest to report. In order for this to work, you must have the app downloaded, your profile established and linked to your turkey tags prior to hunting in an area with limited cell service.
Can I have more than one customer profile on my Go Outdoors SC app?
Yes, you are able to add multiple customer profiles on one device. This feature is particularly useful for parents with young children, spouses that hunt together, or a family member or friend without a smartphone or is uncomfortable using apps.
Who is required to report their harvest?
All persons, including youth, harvesting a wild turkey are required to report their harvest by midnight of the day of harvest using SC Game Check.
If I'm required to check or report harvested wild turkeys at a Wildlife Management Area (WMA) or National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) check station or kiosk, do I also still need to report the harvest with SC Game Check?
Yes, all harvested turkeys must be logged and reported using SC Game Check in addition to checking in or reporting the harvest at a WMA or NWR.
