All deer and turkey must be checked by telephone or on the Internet. No in-person checking stations are available.
You don't need to call Telecheck immediately after taking the game. You have until 10 p.m. on the day of harvest to check your deer or turkey.
After you’ve reported to Telecheck, your deer or turkey may be processed, stored, or transported by anyone as long as it is labeled with your full name, address, date taken, and Telecheck confirmation number. You may now transport your deer or turkey out of state.
Step 1: Select your notched permit from the list.
Step 2: Tap “Telecheck.”
Step 3: Follow the prompts on the screen.
Telecheck will upload a confirmation number to your mobile device.
Note: If you harvested deer in Boone, Cass, Christian, Cole, Franklin, Jefferson or Platte counties, you will be asked: Did you harvest a deer within an urban zone?
Go online to check your deer or turkey, or use a phone to dial 1-800-314-6828, then follow the instructions. If you use the phone, speak clearly and slowly. You can call between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.
After you have provided the required information, you will receive an eight-digit confirmation number that verifies you have legally checked your game. Write this number on the permit.
You have now completed checking your game and can process your deer or turkey.
The most common reason hunters are unable to complete their Telecheck is because of a poor cell phone reception. Wait until you are out of the woods and receive a clear, strong cell phone connection before placing your Telecheck call. Once you’ve notched the month and day of harvest on your permit, you have until 10 p.m. on the day of harvest to check the animal.
