I know you have to attach your filled out tag to your deer, but how do you do the actual attaching? Zip-tie or something?

After losing a tag on a long drag, (and having to walk my backtrail with the warden to find it), I make sure it isn't getting ripped off.

I use either a zip tie or pipe cleaner twist tie type wires and cut a slit in the ear then after wireing it on I tuck it in the ear I to have had to back track to find as well that's why it goes in the ear.

South Dakota's tags are adhesive...you simply peel off the backing and wrap it around the rear leg of your kill

i stick the tag in an ear and wrap strong rubber bands around the ear to secure it.

550 paraders and tie it to base of antler or poke a hole in an antler less deer and tie it very well.

Don'lose it.

Zip tie or bailing wire.

Electrical tape to the leg or antler is the best way I've found. I've tried lots of different things and that seems to work best.

When I lived in NV, I didn't attach it until I got to my vehicle - walking back UP the mountain to find one that came off wasted a lot of time

Same here....unless I forget the cable-ties. Then I end up with one bootlace shorter than the other. :banghead: I too tuck the tag into the ear for the long drag back. If the animal is going on the cargo carrier before being registered, I'll cable tie the ear shut so the wind don't take it off on the way to the registration station. I too would wait till I got back to the truck to tag if I could, but Wisconsin requires you tag the deer before moving or field dressing.

I`ve stuck then in the ear. Rolled up and stuck up the nose. Tied at base of antler. If your dragging in a lot of brush, you have to be creative. As in do what you have too. :)

Thanks everybody! Didn't need to attach one today unfortunately!

Tom, ours here aren't adhesive. Just a square piece of paper. that's why I wasn't sure.

We don't have to mess with that in Virginia. We simply fill out a notch on our license itself. And then once we get home, or somewhere we can get cell/internet reception, we call it in and write the check in number on the notched space on our license.

Here in Alabama we don't have to fool with tags or with checking our deer in anywhere. Our bow season opens in mid October, gun season in mid November and they run through January. The limit is two a day, one of which can be a buck. There is a season limit of three bucks. If we kill a buck we are supposed to record it on our license but I have never been checked by anybody to see if I have.

Here in Kansas I snap a photo of the deer with my cell phone and forward it to the optional KDWP check in. Then the tag is filled out and zip-tied to an antler or ear if a very short drag. Otherwise the tag is filled out and remains in my pocket until I reach the truck. I have talked with several game wardens and all seemed to have no problem with the practice. Main thing is making sure the tag is filled out in ink and is no way usable again.

Wouldn't it be quicker just to use it as patching for a ball and imbed it?

All kidding aside, I usually poke a hole through an ear or leg (between radius and ulna) and tie it on. Since Ohio no longer requires licenses to be visible on the hunter, I'm considering using it to "safety pin" the tag to the deer this year.

I run the zip tie through the hole of the tag, then wrap the tag around the antler and use the zip tie to secure the tag to the antler.

I roll the tag up, put it in the spent shell, and stick it as far in the ear as I can.

Georgia did away with tags. You just pull out your license and record the date you killed the deer along with a little more info.

I used to use #14 copper wire from a piece of romex--thru the hole in the tag to an antler---would do this back at camp. Always hung the deer where it could be seen---we always had people that liked to hunt for your deer---they were too lazy to shoot their own. When they changed the law that you could not bring any type of weapon into a bar---the criminal had an early Christmas. One year one of the guys tied his dog in the back of his rig--he was afraid dog would scratch the seats---we lost 3 fine hunting rifles to the Christmas shoppers.------------------------:fire::fire::fire:

If we kill a buck we are supposed to record it on our license but I have never been checked by anybody to see if I have. This was the violation that got the most citations the first year it was implemented. At a gathering spot located among several hunting clubs in Perry County,Alabama (of which I was a member of one) game wardens just sat and waited as hunters arrived to show their success. Hardly anyone had filled out their license resulting in a $200 fine for each violation(the kill must be recorded on the license before moving the animal). It is now illegal to hunt deer without a pen or pencil in your possession.

I didn't say that I don't fill out my harvest record. I do. (BTW, I leave a pen in each of my shooting houses just in case I forget to take one with me when I go hunting.) I just have never been checked in the six years that I have deer hunted in Alabama. Due to the geography of the situation where I hunt, there are two chances that I would ever be checked where I hunt, slim and none. I think I would be more likely to be checked when I take the deer to the processor. As stated above the warden could just sit there and check to see if the hunters have a filled out harvest record on them. I have killed and taken to the processor 13 deer over the past six seasons and never been checked anywhere.

This is like jury duty. Some folks never get called,some get called a lot. It's also like "Candid Camera"....when you least expect it......

Slit the ear and use a wire tie. I have to fill out my tag before moving the animal as well. Some Wardens will get on you for taking pictures before tagging the animal.

In Fla. no tags, no paperwork. Limit is 2/day but it may as well be 50/day since there are not that many deer.

I use a 3/8" drive Black and Decker cordless driver and a 2 1/2 galvanized deck screw. Oh, wait, that's my dentist. :-\

A zip tie works dandy to wrap the tag around an antler or foreleg.

I keep some twisty ties in my hunting vest and usually attach to an antler (or ear if it is a doe). If you drag your deer out, I would suggest you keep an eye on that tag. Where I hunt, there isn't anyone around and I don't even attach the tag until I get to my truck. I don't want to loose it.

Electrical tape to antler or foreleg.

Around here, we cut out a date on our tags. As long as the date is cut out immediately upon kill, the game wardens around here won't cite you unless you actually transport the animal in a vehicle without the tag attached.

YMMV

Anterless, I cut a slit in the ear and zip tie it. On antlered sometimes I used rubber bands around one of the tines.
I always make sure it is on good after almost getting a ticket for not having one on while dragging. I guess the game warden felt bad after seeing how far I had drug the deer and let me off with a warning.

Thought this might be useful as it has not yet been mentioned. A few years ago a friend was hunting a WMA with some buddies. He killed a nice buck, but had to leave the deer in the area for a reason that I can't remember. When he got back with his friends to retrieve the deer it had been taken although he had made his best efforts to hide it. A short time later my friend was at the checking station with a deer one of his friends killed. He saw a guy checking in a deer that looked a lot like the one that he had killed. He pulled the officer working the station over to the side and asked him to check in the deer's mouth where he had placed his kill tag in a ziplock bag. Sure enough his kill tag was in the deer's mouth, he got his deer back and the guy that had tried to check it in got a variety of violations from the game warden. So, if you have to leave your deer unattended for a little while this might be a good way to cover yourself.
