Do you guys remember when you had to get your beaver pelt tagged by the District Game Protector(WCO)? I almost forgot about this until I was leafing through a 1981 issue Pennsylvania Game News and had a short article on when the "Game Protectors" were going to have beaver tagging sessions.
yup, i got fined 100.00 plus lose of 4 beaver pelts because the warden "didn't get the message " that i had beav to tag.when he did show up it was after the time ran out.should have fought it, but i was told if i lost i would loose my license for three years.

I think it ended right at the end of the 90's. I had just started trapping on my own without my dad when they quit doing the tagging. It was tough to do sometimes. They always did it at the local fur buyers once a year by us, and if you weren't available that day it was hard to get one tagged.
