Licences and back tags

Just wondering, who prefers the new system and what advantage does it serve? I personally liked the back tags and still use the tag holders. I would guess to many people complained of the inconvenience in getting a hunting licence and it led to the new system to appease the masses. I have the tags of previous generations and plan to have the ones of my grandfathers framed this winter. Will make a nice display. Some tradition involved I suppose. Maybe some dont give it a second thought but it took a little out of the whole experience to me. What about you? Has anyone here ever had a metal tag? I feel like a bar code in a part of a data base now when I get my licence.

Re: Licences and back tags

they are cheaper to process
no more printing contract pre orders,
overprinting waste or under printing headaches.

there real easy to get ,add stamps too and even replace if needed.
if it all put together lets the PGC buy 1 more acre, improve some habitat or hire another officer its a success.
and yea I still wear it on my back even though you don't have to anymore

Re: Licences and back tags

I prefer to keep mine in my wallet, don't have to worry about forgetting it when going from small game to archery or back...

The old way was tolerable, but I prefer the new way. Never was fond of pinning the back tag to a tee shirt during warm weather outings for groundhogs.

Re: Licences and back tags

I believe i still have a few doe tags from the 80s in the house. Cool idea on framing them to hang in the man cave.

New way better in regards to getting license, adding tags, etc. Displaying my license never really bugged so i still keep my license in a holder.I'm starting to use a money clip which has my hunting license and then i just slide my drivers license with it. I hate having my wallet in my pocket hunting, especially busting brush.

RIP Tuff 98-11, So many hunts, so many good times!

No you don't. Trust me. No you don't. Youthfulness will disappear faster than a blink of an eye. Don't wish it away.

Gentlemen,
I like displaying my hunting license on my back for the
Wardens to see from a distance, I will continue to display it, IMO this was not a good change to the Game laws.

Sitting in a treestand with that thing grabbing the tree was annoying and noisy. I'm glad Ohio dropped that rule a while back.

I always have a paper tag holder on the vest...often picking the paper tag for little more than the color or the year or the memory it delivers and regardless of the state I am in.

Always wondered if there was some archaic violation that a birdy warden might choose to enforce re displaying a hunting license from one state when hunting in another.

GBE was correct....decades ago.

Rory has a good owner now....lucky lad.
