WISCONSIN - The DNR will make changes to how people register deer.
This year they're starting a program allowing hunters to register deer online or by phone.
Only some hunters will take part in the program.
Next year it will be in full effect.
"Right now we're doing a pilot program in 2014, where there's 14,000 people who've been picked to practice this registration. And next year everybody will be able to either register by phone or on the internet. They will still have the opportunity to register at a station as long as there is a telephone or a computer for them," says DNR Conservation Warden Paul Hartrick.
Hunters still have the same amount of time to register online or by phone as they did when they registered in person.
DNR workers think that might be easier for hunters.
"So right now we're making it more convenient for hunters and the DNR. We're going to be able to save money this way and it's more efficient for hunters to do it on their own time, on their own property wherever they're hunting," says Hartrick.
Hunters have already registered nearly 1,000 deer remotely this fall.
