INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s Natural Resources Commission is considering whether to change the rules for hunting deer and wild turkey.

The commission will hold a public hearing Oct. 4 in Plainfield on whether to allow hunters to check-in deer and wild turkeys electronically.

The electronic harvest reporting system allows hunters to check in a deer or wild turkey using a computer or other Internet-capable device, or by telephone.

Hunters still have the option of checking in a deer or turkey at a check station.

The system has been in effect by temporary rule since the spring 2012 wild turkey season.

The NRC is expected to vote on final adoption of the rule package at its Nov. 20 meeting.
