The tag may be attached anywhere on a deer so that it is not damaged, defaced, or lost in transporting or handling. For deer, the appropriate tag or permit must remain attached until the deer reaches its final destination and is quartered. If deer’s head is severed from the carcass (body), then the appropriate tag or permit must remain attached to its carcass. Proof of sex. If the head does not accompany the carcass, then the head must be accompanied by a Wildlife Resource Document (WRD).
Tip: Remember that if the head and the carcass are separated, the tag from the hunting license goes with the meat and the WRD goes with the head.
Read the tag use description on your license carefully before attaching to harvested deer.
