Tag in the ear law
With all the law changes the PGC makes , I'd like to see one common sense change. Remove the law that says the tag has to be fastened to the ear so the bar code can be read. For those of us that actually get pretty far from the parking lot having the tag tear off during the drag is a real possibility. I've had to backtrack and look for the tag a number of times. I usually try and tuck it down in the ear and drag with the tag up and keep checking occasionally but I've still had them come off, I mean ITS PAPER!! common sense tells you that catching on brush, laurel, over rocks, over logs, sliding down the mt, pulling up the mt, sooner or later your gonna tear it!
I have had two occasions where I had to back track pretty far, but luckily found it. And what if its windy? good luck now you have an untagged deer..not good. Stupid in fact. Why even chance it? So what the heck is wrong with as long as its properly filled out, putting it in your license holder and pinning it to the ear, or better yet stick it in your pocket till you get it out of the woods. You need to scan it?....no problem here it is.
