GameReg - electronic game registration

In 2017, all deer, bear, turkey, geese, bobcat, fisher and otter will be reported electronically through GameReg.

Registration methods

Registration is still mandatory and is accomplished using one of the methods below.

How it works

After immediately validating the carcass tag, hunters and certain trappers (bobcat, fisher and river otter only) will have several options for registering harvests through the GameReg electronic registration system. Go online to gamereg.wi.gov (fastest and easiest option), call 1-844-GAME-REG (1-844-426-3734) or, if registering a deer or bear, find an in-person registration station that provides one of these methods.

Upon submitting all required harvest information through GameReg, the hunter will receive a 10-character confirmation number for his/her records. This confirmation number no longer needs to be written on the validated carcass tag, but should be retained and will be required if the game is taken to a taxidermist or meat processor. All hunters will obtain a confirmation number at the completion of registration, even if registering at an in-person station.

Exception: while bobcat, fisher and otter are reported through GameReg, they still require in-person registration within five days of the end of the month of harvest.

For key species-specific registration requirements, review the harvest registration fact sheet [PDF].
