Everyone realize the new tagging law for deer this year??

11 posts in this topic

NEW THIS YEAR

The animal may be moved from the kill site by dragging, carrying,

or carting to a motor vehicle or camp without being tagged, provided

the validated tag is in the possession of the person moving

the animal. At all other times the validated tag must be attached

to the animal.

The key thing to remember here is to be sure to validate the tag at the kill site.

There's also a validation box on the actual license that needs to be notched, which is new this year. It's noted in the regs. book.

wonder if they had complaints after changing the tag to a less secure design so now you can drag without fear of it ripping off in the woods?

So why was that added?? How many people do you think will pick that up in the regs when they're reading thru the 40+ pages of deer regs? Why make it more confusing??!

My guess and its just a total guess, but I would bet it has something to do with there ultra cheap tags that fall off if you drag them anywhere and people losing their tags because of it.

There were complaints long before the change from sticky tags. In fact, if you bring a ziptie and use it to wrap the tag they work better than the sticky backs.

Simple answer ... cheating. People were registering deer and then reusing their licenses. By validating the license you can't do that anymore. I know it sounds silly but it happens.

My thinking was that if you validate the tag by cutting out the date and AM/PM notches, it couldn't be reused. I guess maybe on the same day it could be. Guess I'll have to go home and look at my licence to clarify this. And look at the regs and reread the 'whats new this year' part!!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive

      Nailed the Crappies last night in 2-3 feet of water!!   They were all 9-10" and skinny runts for the length.   All were catch n release and topped off with a 18 64/65th " bass at dark!!  it was as close as 19" you could go with out being 19" LOL   What a rush on 4 pound test    Tried to take a pic and flash wouldn't work on phone      Cret

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.
