Red tag farms allow certainfarms to have hunting opportunities outside the normal hunting seasons, for the purpose of controlling crop damage etc. There's more to it than that, but that's the basic principle of it

borden 811 is right on that one, a red tag farmer get 1 tag for every 5 arces of plantable ground and 1 tag per every 20 acres of woods. (i think those are the numbers but dont hold me to it) and the sole purposed is for the removal of deer on that farm to reduce the amount of crop damage a farmer may sustain in a years time. i take advantage of it, 1 so i can get a little extra meat, as me and my family use alot of it (i work for the state and right now not receiving a paycheck this deer will help alot)(i give the good lord all the thanks for this one). red tags do not cost the hunter anything compaired to the dmap tags. alot of people dont agree with the red tag program, but i grew up on a farm and worked on a farm, i understand where the farmers come from, an i do agree with it so i activlly participate every year and have done so for many years.

ng270 thanks. thats my wifes modle 110 in the .243.

Wow, I was thinking that it would be great to get a goose with a band on it, but that definately beats out that expectation. Great job!
