HARVEST RECORD RETURN POLICY:  Hunters who request a harvest record for deer and/or turkey season are required to return them to the Fish and Wildlife Office.  Although the requirement itself is nothing new, the fact that this rule is now being enforced is new.  You must return the harvest record whether you record a harvest or not.  The penalty for not returning the harvest record is a 1-year suspension.  However, hunters can get their suspension lifted if they return the harvest record to the Fish and Wildlife Office, in person or by mail (address is on the card).  If harvest card is lost, please call the Fish and Wildlife Office at 912-767-9040 or 912-767-2584
