Hunters: Call toll-free number for hunter reports, online reporting unavailable

Big game hunters are reminded that the online hunter report form is still unavailable.

Currently, the only way to file a hunter report for deer, elk and pronghorn is to call the toll-free number at 877-268-9365 and speak to a live operator 24-hour a day, 7 days a week.  Please have your hunting license number or tag number available when you call.

Fish and Game's online hunter report system was a casualty of the August data breach of their online vendor's database. The department’s online sales and hunter report system will not resume until a third-party cybersecurity firm completes an investigation and certifies that the system is secure. 

“We want to thank all hunters for their patience, but we still do not have a timetable for when the online reporting will be available,” said Michael Pearson, Fish and Game Administration Chief.

Reporting by phone is quick and easy, and when you’re completed, you give critical hunt and harvest information, which directly affects decisions about next year’s hunting seasons. Every person who purchased big game tag this year is asked to file a report, even if they did not go hunting.
