Hunters who harvest a deer, bear, or turkey must report it within 48 hours. Hunters or trappers who harvest beaver, bobcat, coyote, fisher, fox, mink, or otter must report it within 4 working days of the end of the season.
You can report your harvest online using MassFishHunt. However, during the first week of shotgun deer hunting season, all deer must be reported in person at a check station so that MassWildlife biologists may collect biological data. Bobcat and otter must be reported in person at a check station and cannot be reported online.
