(UNDATED) - Hunters can check in their game online through the CheckIN Game system, in the Fish & Wildlife Online Services application, at an on-site check station, or by phone.

Deer firearms season begins Nov. 18th and runs through Dec. 3rd.

The 2017-2018 deer hunting seasons are as follows:

  • Reduction Zone: Sept. 15, 2017-Jan. 31, 2018 (where open)

  • Youth Season: Sept. 23-24, 2017

  • Archery: Oct. 1, 2017-Jan. 7, 2018

  • Firearm: Nov. 18-Dec. 3, 2017

  • Muzzleloader: Dec. 9-24, 2017

  • Special Antlerless: Dec. 26, 2017-Jan. 7, 2018 (where open)

The online CheckIN Game system and the Fish & Wildlife Online Services can be used with any Internet-connected device. Both of these options are free, and you don't need to set up an account online to check in your game. You can purchase licenses, check in game, view your check-in history, get your HIP number, purchase a gift certificate or make a donation through your account.

The phone-in option (1-800-419-1326) carries a $3 fee (Visa or Mastercard only).

Even at on-site check stations, station managers will enter information online through the CheckIN Game System. Stations no longer use paper log books or issue metal tags.

Still not sure what license you need? Our online sport license finder can help.

The online license system requires users to set up an account to purchase licenses, so we suggest you allow additional time to set up your account and enter your information if you haven't done so already.

State offices will be closed Friday, Nov. 10, in observance of Veterans Day, so consider buying your license early to avoid delays.
