Toll free number is vital check for Arkansas deer, turkey hunters

From the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission

-- A new number is impacting the lives of Arkansas deer and turkey hunters. They will get to know it – at least the ones who are successful in taking a buck, a doe or a turkey.

The number is (877) 507-4263.

Yes, it is toll free. Hunters can call it from anywhere to check deer or turkey. That is the new system of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, replacing the check stations that were used for decades.

If you are an over-65 hunter or a younger-than-16 hunter, you will do well to write this number down and keep it in your billfold. The number is in the Hunting Guidebook of the AGFC if you carry that with you and is also on the game tags in the Guidebook.

For others with wildlife conservation licenses or sportsmen’s licenses, the checking number is on the back of the license.
Checking of deer and turkey can be done two ways – the call to (877) 507-4263 or online at

When you’ve finished checking your game, you’ll be given a check number that must be recorded on the license, so make sure you have a pen ready.
