Moving deer without tagging

Why would anyone remove a deer from where they killed it, gut it, put it into a truck and not even remove the appropriate tag from the train of licences let alone fill out any part of the tag? Saw this twice this year!

They probably planned on using that tag on the 'next' one.

Or they already used theirs and went home for the wife's/son's/daughters tag.

My father in law did that one time. Shot a piebald buck, and in his excitement he told me later that he simply forgot to put the tag on the deer. He filled it out but forgot to remove it from his license. He then dragged the deer to the road to wait for me to show up. The game warden was patrolling the logging road and saw him there and asked if that was where the deer dropped. He said no, and was issued him a written warning..He learned his lesson.

Well, to be fair, maybe he lost it? Happened to me 2 years ago. Shot a doe on the last Saturday, went for my tag and the back pack was empty. I know it was there when I entered the woods. In a panic, I obtained a replacement license from a vendor and called the PGC. You can only get replacement doe tags from a county treasurer. They were pretty nice about it and just told me to write my CID number, name & address, on a piece of paper and take it to the processor.

I'm so paranoid when I shot a doe the other day I grabbed my ziplock bag containing pens and zip ties. Climbed down walked 80 yards to the deer and went to fill out my tag. Dumb Dumb grabbed everything except his license and tag. Walked 80 yards back to my stand and got my tag then walked back to the deer. Could I have drug the deer to my stand and tagged it? Yep! It is what it is, but I'm gonna try my best to do it right every time.

perhaps they hunt in states that don't have such a stupid rule.

When I got my deer this year, the very first thing I did was cut two slits in the ear, fill out the tag, put it in the ear, move the deer 20' to a flat spot and field dressed it.
I then left it there until I could find help to get it out. About 400 yds from the truck..
When I came back 45 minutes later, it was still where I left it.
Even if someone had taken it or told me that I couldn't have it because it was on their land, I wouldn't have done anything about it because I knew it was my deer.
I've had deer that I shot taken off me on my own property before - when I was a kid.
But I won't move it until it is first tagged.

Some people just plain forget in all the excitement. I can think of several turkeys and deer that were halfway to the truck before I remembered to tag them. That said, they all get tug... no bad intentions on my part, I just plain forgot on a few of them.
