Turkey Hunting Check Stations

All turkeys harvested during Delaware’s wild turkey hunting season must be checked at an authorized turkey check station by 2:30 p.m. on the day the bird is harvested.

The list of check stations is subject to change without notice. Please check back before the season begins for any changes. Check station hours may vary. Please call ahead to the station where you are likely to check a bird to confirm the hours of operation.
