Re: Tag in the ear, why?
What happens when most guys go to the processor? Whack the antlers off, and leave the rest. Tag on antlers, tag goes home with hunter. When the wco stops in to check on things, (i.e. properly tagged deer, tag filled out propelry, or even if the deer was tagged) what's he supposed to look at? A carcass with a hole in the head? That probably wouldn't do much good now would it? The tag is supposed to stay with the carcass until it's prepared for consumption, etc. Can't do that if it's tied to the rack in the back of Elmer's pickup eh?
I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright
