With fall in full force, many hunters are going afield in pursuit of their favorite game. Landowners and hunters alike need to remember what is required by law to retrieve any downed game along with trespass laws.
As the archery and turkey seasons continue, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources reminds hunters about recently implemented changes involving the use of deer and turkey carcass tags. • Deer tags are still issued with license purchases. However, validation and attachment of tags is no longer required, nor is the requirement to keep the tag with the deer meat. • Turkey carcass tags have been replaced with turkey harvest authorizations. Turkey hunters are no longer required to validate or attach the tag, or to keep the tag with the turkey meat.
