*NOTE: List of check stations subject to change without notice. Visit www.de.gov/fw after April 1 for any changes. Hours may vary. Call the station where you will check a bird to confirm hours of operation.

Check station hours may vary, so hunters are advised to call the station where they are likely to check a bird to confirm the hours of operation. Hunters who want to have their bird scored and entered into the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) records are reminded to have their bird’s live weight recorded on a certified scale. If the check station does not have a certified scale, hunters will have to go to another shop to have the turkey re-weighed. For more information about the NWTF Turkey Records program, please visit: www.nwtf.org/hunt/records

Wild Turkey Sighting Survey
