E-Check, Deer Processors & Hunter Orange
Go Online to Check All Deer, Elk, Turkey
All deer, all elk, and all turkeys must be reported online at wildlifedepartment.com within 24 hours of leaving the hunt area (or checked by an authorized Department employee, when available). The E-Check website will generate a number on a carcass tag that can be printed and attached to the harvest. If a printer is unavailable, the number may be written on a field tag (produced by the hunter) and attached to the harvest. This number must remain with the carcass to its final destination or through processing and/or storage at commercial processing or storage facilities.
E-check offers hunters a more convenient way to report their harvest to Department biologists, who use the information to make the best management decisions. No longer must deer, elk and turkey hunters take their harvested game to a physical check station for reporting, although some locations will offer E-Check as a service to hunters.
Physical checking will continue for bear and antelope harvests.
Deer hunters can find a list of deer processing sites online at wildlifedepartment.com. Many deer processors participate in the Hunters Against Hunger program, which allows hunters who legally harvest a deer during any deer season to donate the meat to feed hungry Oklahomans.
