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

Recommended Posts

Mark Christianson

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!!

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
