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.
