Turkey Check in Stations

Looks like the old Bill & Kens on 79 in Morganville is now just Wayne and his partner(Morganville game butchers) and is still a check station.

Looks like the closest one to me.

That's one that Google didn't find easily... is it this: https://goo.gl/maps/SdHv7Gb3AJs ??

Good post. Hainesville General Store for us. Some of the nicest people and best homemade food around in the northern part of the state.

I called Cheyenne's at lunch time they didn't know anything about being a turkey check station, I hope they figure it out by Saturday.

Mazz,

OK, got it - I put it on the map... labeled "Morganville game butchers"

Does the state F&G actually do anything with the stats of the birds or is it just for just for accountability reasons?  I got crap from a check-in station for bringing a field dressed bird to be checked in...I know they are supposed to do things by protocol, but there are also meat waste laws.  That day I shot the bird at 6am couldn't check it in until 2pm.  Solve the issue by changing to online check in

You can check a bird in either way, gutted or not. They probably bitched cause if you brought the bird inside their store it could drip blood all over.

I’m glad Cheyenne is now a check station. I used to go to the Sportsmen’s Center but they are gone.

I have not but I assumed since they were newly listed on the NJDFW website that they were all setup.

I emailed the state when Sportsman Center closed regarding this...they were aware and said the they were talking with Cheyenne about it.  Called Cheyenne about a month ago and the guy I talked to said he hadn't heard from the state except from back when SC closed in the Fall...but he was assuming they would be communicating prior to this season to make Cheyenne a check station.

 

The one time I got crap from checking in a field dressed bird was at Sportsmans center maybe 3 years ago...I explained situation and they didn't like really care for my reason, although they completed the process that time.  I weigh my birds with a digital fish scale and gave them that #, which was 20lbs.  I can see if I lied and said the bird weighed 30lbs, breaking records and such...not the case.

I spoke to the Turkey Project Leader who informed me Cheyenne is a station and he doesn't know why you were told that.  Cream Ridge does need to be removed from the list. An updated list should be posted later today.  PT

I removed that from my Google Map. You guys in the central part of the state are looking pretty sparse with your check-in stations.

Checking turkeys is an idiot rule by an ahole f&g Dept....one more obstacle for those who want to hunt before work....all you have to do is drive 45 minutes each way to check your bird.  Of course the bio data is useful but the kill data would be more accurate with online checking.  I think the real purpose dfg clings to checking is to make sure you buy multiple permits.....

I called F&G last year just after turkey season ended and told them I’d like to be a check station being that my business is in Lawrenceville and there isn’t another check station remotely close. I’m at my shop by 6:30 am every day and there until 5pm. Offered to do it for free as a convenience to Sportsman in the west central part of the state. They told me thanks but no thanks because it was definitely going to be online for the 2018 season. Told them to let me know if it changes and I could be set up for it in no time. Never heard a thing and here we are again...

HA! I remember that now! What a pita!! This really happened -- "...was out of the woods at 9am. My closest check-in station didn't open 'til 10. I had to drive a half hour to another check-in station, only to find out they were closed for the entire day!! I then had to drive BACK those 30 minutes and wait for them to open. Wasted an hour."

Oh, that closest check-in station that didn't open til 10?  Recently went out of business - not even there anymore :whatever:
