    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.

    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.
