PRMS0501The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife is advising bowhunters that deer harvested during the 2012 Winter Bow Season must be reported using the new Automated Game Check System (AGCS) instead of being brought to a deer check station. Using the AGCS, hunters will report their deer over the telephone or online.

2012 Bow Licenses now come with a Harvest Report Stub (which includes a Harvest Number) instead of a Transportation Tag.  Once successful hunters retrieve their kill they are to complete the stub with the exception of the "Confirmation Number" - this number will be provided when the deer is reported via the AGCS. When reporting deer hunters will provide additional information (date, zone, etc.) about their deer. 

More information, including images of the new Harvest Report Stub, is available at .  All bow hunters are encouraged to review this information before heading to their hunting location.
