Report your wild turkey harvest

The easiest way to report a harvest is online using MassFishHunt, but you can also go to an official check station.
You must report your wild turkey harvest within 48 hours.



The Details

What you need

Upon harvesting a turkey, you must immediately fill out and attach the paper tag from your permit the carcass. Your game must remain intact (other than field dressing), with the harvest tag attached, until it is reported and prepared for food or taxidermy purposes.

How to report

  • Go to MassFishHunt.
  • Use your last name and customer ID to log in. Your customer ID can be found on your license or turkey permit.
  • Select Report a Harvest.
  • Select Turkey from the harvest menu, and click Add.
  • You will have to answer a series of questions if you are reporting a spring turkey harvest. You will need to examine your turkey for spur and beard lengths or tail feather lengths to answer some of the questions. Click the question mark icon to the right of each question for help.
  • You will get a confirmation number after completion. You must write this number on the harvest tag (which should still be attached to the harvested turkey), where it shall remain until the turkey is processed for food or taxidermy purposes.

You can also report your harvest at a physical check station.
