When to use Telecheck

All deer harvested, including during the November firearm season, must checked via Telecheck.
Physical check stations are not operating in 2020 because of COVID-19 concerns.

• Deer harvested must be checked via Telecheck within 48 hours of kill, but no later than 1 p.m. on the day after the close of the season for which the permit was valid.
• Deer harvested must be checked in before leaving the state.
• Each permit holder is responsible for registering his or her own deer.
• The permit holder must record the seal number on the permit of any deer checked via Telecheck. That number and permit must be retained while transporting the deer
to a point of permanent storage or processing.
• Deer may be checked online or by phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Call the phone number on the permit or visit

Hunters who have difficulty completing the online registration process may call their local Game and Parks district office or service center between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. during the season: Lincoln, Wildlife Division office, 402-471-9932; Alliance district office, 308-763-2940; Kearney service center, 308-865-5310; Norfolk district office, 402-370-3374; Bassett service center, 402-684-2921; or North Platte district office, 308-535-8025.
