CHADRON - The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is reminding pronghorn hunters to follow the proper check-in process during the firearm season. Hunters who harvest pronghorn during the firearm season Oct. 13-28, regardless of weapon choice, are required to visit one of the Commission’s big game check-stations with their game.

Pronghorn, commonly called antelope, are hunted in north-central Nebraska and the Panhandle. During periods outside of the firearm season, Nebraska hunters use the telecheck system to report their harvest by phone and internet.

Information about proper check-in processes may be found on each permit. A map of check stations, along with more information about hunting pronghorn and other big game animals, is available at outdoornebraska.org.
