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 OutdoorNebraska.gov/telecheck/.
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.
The Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office has obtained a Med-Return drug collection unit. Citizens looking to dispose of excess and expired prescription and over-the-counter medications can now visit the safe and secure permanent drop off location in the south hall of the courthouse. Properly disposing of excess drugs is everyone's responsibility as a matter of public safety. More than 70 percent of the young people abusing prescription pain relievers get them through friends and family, a statistic that includes raiding the family medicine cabinet. Now Cheyenne County citizens won't have to wait for a specific take-back day to clean out their medicine cabinets. Keep prescription medication away from our children and out of our water supply.
