Reporting big game harvests (deer, turkey and bear) is a requirement in North Carolina. Hunters, regardless of age, shall carry a valid Big Game Harvest Report Card with them while hunting deer, bear, or wild turkey. Youth less than 16 years old are required to have their own report card whether it be issued as part of their lifetime license or as a license-exempt report card. Youth should never report their big game harvest on a parent or other adult's report card. All others exempt from the hunting license requirement should also obtain and carry a license-exempt report card when hunting big game. License-exempt Big Game Harvest Report Cards can be obtained at a wildlife service agent ($2 fee) or by calling 888-248-6834 (no fee). License-exempt report cards are not available online.
Hunters should carry their Big Game Harvest Report Card with them while big game hunting for validating and registering a harvest.
An authorization number is given during the registration process and is required for a hunter to legally possess their harvest.
