Field Tagging & Checking

Hunting Regulations Icon Oklahoma Hunting

Field Tagging Requirements

All hunters (including lifetime license holders) who harvest a deer or elk must immediately attach their name, license number, and date and time of harvest securely to the carcass. Annual license holders who harvest deer or elk must also complete the “Record of Game” section on the license form.

All hunters (including lifetime license holders) who harvest a turkey must immediately attach their name and license number securely to the carcass. Annual license holders must also include the date and time of harvest with their field tag and complete the “Record of Game” section on the license form.

All hunters (including lifetime license holders) who harvest an antelope must immediately attach their name and license number securely to the carcass. Annual license holders who harvest antelope must also complete the “Record of Game” section on the license form. Antelope hunters participating in controlled hunts must also include the date and time of harvest on the field tag.

All field tags can be any item, so long as the tag contains the required information. The information must remain attached to the carcass until it is checked.

Checking Requirements

All deer and elk must be checked within 24 hours of leaving the hunt area through one of the options listed below. All turkeys must also be checked within 24 hours of leaving the hunt area, and in all cases prior to processing the carcass.

Deer, elk and turkey must be E-Checked online at wildlifedepartment.com, or with an authorized Department employee. Once checked, the animal will be issued a carcass tag or an online confirmation number. This tag or number must remain with the carcass to its final destination or through processing and/or storage at commercial processing or storage facilities. Deer and elk carcasses may be checked in quartered with sex organs naturally attached and head accompanying the carcass.

All antelope must be checked within 24 hours of leaving the hunt area at an open check station in Cimarron or Texas counties (see page 20), or with an authorized Department employee assigned to one of the counties where antelope are hunted. Once checked, the antelope will be issued a carcass tag that must remain with the carcass to its final destination or through processing and/or storage at commercial processing or storage facilities. The head must remain attached to the carcass until the antelope is checked.

Checking requirements for bear are listed on page 21.

Deer Processors

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.
