While waiting the whole day for the SIL to hunt at Okmulgee, I was talking with the rangers about what they thought of the new computer check in. They both thought it was a great deal. They figured that anyone that was going to go to a check station would check their deer anyways.Someone not going to check it in wouldn't notice any change in the system anyhow.

The only thing I wish they would do is put in a tele-check system like Missouri has. You just phone it in to an automated system, and its done. Don't have to use a computer at all.

I used it on my brother's doe tonight.It was fast and easy.Printed out his carcass tag.If you don't have a printer handy you just write the number down.That easy.It did not ask for a weight though.I figured they would ask for an estimated weight.

Virginia and NC both had in person check in and phone in. Some times they both got on my bad side.

I used it this year when I killed a doe in archery season, it was warm and I wanted to get the meat on ice. I called the wife gave her my lifetime license number, and the area I killed it and she was able to give me a confirmation number within a couple minutes. I had the doe butchered and on ice by the time I would have had it checked in had I went to town. Pretty convenient if you ask me.

Certainly an improvment. Some(TX) states don't even have a check in at all. With the deer populations exploding they don't worry about it. Kind of like our turkey check-in. West of I-35 you shoot your turkey and take it home. East of I35 you have to check it in. ??? Keeping track of the eastern breed I guess. ???
