Tele-Check Compliance Rate

The tables below show deer harvest's reported before and after that states implementation of "Self Checking" big game harvests. 

My term "Self Checking" refers to the reporting of a deer harvest by the hunter, without the need for a "Checking Station". Commonly referred to as "Telecheck", but telecheck is not very accurate description considering many game agencies checking procedures have evolved beyond the telephone to include the obvious, the internet.

If you see an error let us know.
