Telecheck Program

Telecheck is closed during the November firearm deer season.

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 late season hunters must use Telecheck.

Is a metal seal put on the animal?
No. Write the seal number and security code on the permit.

Should I keep the cancelled permit?
Yes. It is best to retain the permit until the animal is eaten.

Can I still go to a check station?
All deer harvested during the November firearm season MUST be checked at a manual check station. Antleope harvested during the October firearm season must checked at a manual check station. All other deer and antelope must be telechecked.

What if I have trouble?
Call Nebraska Game and Parks- 402-471-0641  

Why can’t I use Telecheck during the November firearm deer season?
Commission biologists need to collect age data from bucks. We also collect other biological data as needed. The November firearm season is the best time to gather this data.
