Big Game Check-In (Telecheck)

The Nebraska Telecheck Program allows hunters to check deer or antelope by telephone or online, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

All deer harvested outside the November firearm season must be checked via Telecheck, as manual check stations will only be available for the November firearm season. Antelope archers, muzzleloaders and lateseason hunters must use Telecheck.

Elk must be delivered to a check station before leaving the state and within 48 hours of kill, but no later than 1 p.m. of the day following the close of any portion of the season.

Deer harvested during the November firearm deer season and antelope harvested during the October firearm season must be taken to a check station. Names and locations of check stations are listed on our interactive map and also on pages 3 and 4 of the summary deer regulations.
