All elk 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 harvesting an elk. You have until 10 p.m. on the day of harvest to check your elk. Elk can be field-dressed or quartered with evidence of sex retained prior to being Telechecked. You can transport unchecked elk within the state as long as the permit is attached to the leg or with the hunter so long as the hunter is with the elk.
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.
Each of the following counts as a point:
Go online to check your elk, or use a phone to dial the number provided on your hunting permit, 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 elk.
