what are the laws when it comes to tagging deer? the book says it must be tagged before moving the carcass. what date and time do you put on the tag? when you shot it or when you recover it? i was curious because i see posts from archers saying let the deer lay and get it in the morning or they track after dark. what if you find the deer on sunday morning? do you tag it with sundays date and time and if you do is that illegal? what about tagging at 2am is that illegal? im just wondering in case i ever get into that situation. i did have a bad hit on a deer a few years ago and never found blood or the deer and did lots of looking on sunday the next day.
