I am always very diligent about reporting my kills on time, and reporting on my dmap tags too. But, this year, I forgot to report my dmap tags (no kills) until after the deadline passed, and then was unable to do so online. I know that the rules say that you must report, or will not be allowed to purchase a DMAP tag next year. I know two different people who SAY they never report them, and still are able to purchase them the next year. Anybody know exactly how it works? I know it was my fault, so whatever happens, happens.

If you forget to report you can't get DMAPS following year. Happened to family, a member on here on 2 occasions. Same thing. Forgot till past deadline, following year he was denied any DMAP coupons.

I believe that was the way it was the first few years, but I think the PGC did away with the part of being "ineligible the next year" if you did not report either a harvest or a no harvest. You are still supposed to report either way.

So the coupon the landowner issues to the hunter is than wasted I presume?

Not in my case anyway. I get them online when they become available for a local state park. I'm guessing that when I apply this year, it will just come up that I'm ineligible. Time will tell. If I get denied, then I have nobody to blame but myself. Sometimes life just gets in the way.:eek:

I forget when ours arrived last year....it may have been some time in June time-frame. You do not receive any confirmation on the application until the coupons arrive in the mail.

I think the next-year denial after a non-report was the original intent of the DMAP reporting....but they softened up on it after they got pressured on it. I think you will be able to buy DMAP tags this year when you attempt to do so.
