Online Deer Harvest Reporting

All successful hunters during Vermont’s deer hunting seasons must, by law, report their deer within 48 hours to the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.

Reporting Online  

Online reporting systems, which have been used successfully by other states, offer hunters a quick, easy and convenient way to report their harvest while providing wildlife biologists with the data necessary for monitoring harvest trends and managing the white-tailed deer population. Hunters who prefer to report their deer in-person to a check station are welcome to continue doing so.

To submit your harvest report, please have the following information readily available:

  • Your Conservation ID# (Find you Conservation ID# on the upper left-hand corner of your license or look it up here)
  • Your Tag Number (If this is a landowner tag, enter “Landowner” into the form.)
    rifle buck tag
  • A photograph of the deer (optional) to include:
    harvest buck headshot and with hunter
    Photo should include a headshot with the tag attached or the hunter's face if tag is not readable. Click image for more details.
    • The head area of the deer to confirm the presence or absence of antlers and number of antler points. Photo should also include the filled-out tag attached to the deer. 
    • OR Your face in the photo to connect the harvested deer to you if the tag is not readable.
  • Location of kill: Town and Wildlife Management Unit | WMU map
  • Date and time of kill
  • Sex the deer
  • Deer's weight (estimated weight is acceptable)

Thank you for your support. Your harvest data are important to us and to the future of Vermont’s white-tailed deer management.
