    I have not seen any thread asking this, if there is one I Missed It But Last year it was about 4 Weeks or so depending on when it was Turned In. At the Check Station Yesterday they Suggested a couple of Weeks but also said depends on how many have been turned in so far?
    So if you have submitted a Head this year, have you got the Results Back or are You Still Waiting? How long has it Been? As I also wonder if your Deer come back with a Positive is the DNR Just Covering your Cost with a Replacement License? Might they also Cover Paid Deer Processing Fees as well as you have to pay that and then wait for the Results as some don't do their own Processing themselves.
    I asked this to the DNR 3 years back and they never said what they were going to Cover exactly? Has anyone Heard the policy on this? As once you learn of the Results it is bit late to get back out to hunt will that License, will it be Good for Next Years Hunt?
    Thanks for any details anyone has.

    Submitted to check station the 17th.
    It showed no evidence today on C.W.D..
    T.B. it showed no evidence not a week after submission.(?)

    So , a couple short weeks. BUT , I didn't check everyday. L.o.l..
    (Seems I checked twice...)
    The site checked for info had the date of the 18th.
    I'm guessing that was the day the lab received the sample.

    Richards is a processor in Linden. It was a doe I shot on the fifth.

    Well first off it's Richardson's in Linden. Secondly I only put down the county and not the specific location. My bad. The DNR couldn't make out my phone number and had to wait until I called.

    So, a couple weeks or so.

    Apparently once you get your paper work right it takes 4 days. Mine was posted on December 6th not detected and she was 3.5 years old.

    Had several times I had the results in days. Also had times where it took 2 weeks. It depends how busy they are and also time of year. November has a quick turn around but come mid to late December it can take a while.
