SB2922 Deer and Turkey Tagging

Postby jv » Fri Feb 02, 2018 10:18 pm

Looks like a new bill has been introduced to require tagging of deer and Turkey.

I think it's about time there is no way to monitor harvest the way it's done now

Back in the 60s/70s MS had a tagging system.

Just my take on it.
Whom is going to enforce it?
Only the truly ethical hunter will use a tag.
I hunted a lot this deer season and only saw 1 officer and he was on the interstate running 80+ mph
There is no way for this to work until we have officers to enforce it, which will not happen.

While a tagging system seems good in theory, I am not sure how it would work in practice. Check in stations would have to be everywhere, to expensive. Enough game wardens to check and enforce, the state is never going to spend enough money to hire them.
Ethnic hunters will tag and report. Those that don't care won't. I still don't think the state will get the results they want.

I saw and was checked by a game warden while hunting on government land this year.

The last time I saw a warden while out hunting was two years ago and the reason I remember it was because as several of us was out on the edge of the road talking and eating lunch when he pulled up and asked to see our guns to make sure they were unloaded and then started checking licenses. After he checked everyone else's he got back in his truck and someone said hey you didn't check Jimmy's license and he stuck his head out the door and said well I know Jimmy and I do know he has a gold license that don't expire and then he said anyway he can't kill a deer anyway so I'm not worried about him.
But to get back to tagging, I don't have a problem with a tagging system but also don't believe the state will put out the money to hire personal to enforce it and the uneffectual hunters will still find a way around it.

No tagging system is fool proof in Arkansas it is set up on a call in or internet you have 24 hrs after harvest and you are given a confirmation number that stays with the animal pretty simple

I have never hunted in Arkansas bigsteve but have hunted turkey in Missouri several times and when you killed a turkey you had to put the tag on the turkeys leg before it was moved and then you took it to a check station which where we were hunting was a small country store where the recorded all the information. Now I imagine they received some compensation from the state but how much I have no idea.

The state doesn't issue tags any more you have to tag the animal before it is moved you have to produce the tag with your name address hunter I'd number method of harvest sex of animal date of harvest and the zone where taken after the animal is checked you are given a harvest confirmation number takes about 5 minutes to check open 24 /7

Many years ago when we had a tagging system. It was determined that it did nothing for management purposes. It only brought in more money to the state and was not being returned to the mdwfp. I remember every year buying extra doe tags at the original Surplus City on hwy 80 in Jackson. We always tagged our deer,knowing full well we would most likely not see a game warden. But a lot of people would take their chances. There was no check in stations unless you were hunting state management's. No where to call and report your harvest. You were just buying tags. Later after the tagging was stopped., they did implement a write in survey program. Which by the way also proved to not work. Mississippi, just does not have and is not willing to spend the money for resources needed to enforce such laws. They could raise license fees to generate the funds, but unwilling to face the backlash from the hunters.

Just a matter of time before it passes. Maybe not this year or next but will be in near future. The next thing is to do away with all the commission or at least make it a requirement that they have a wildlife biology degree. I have always said without a tagging system game wardens have about as much chance of doing business as the highway patrol would without radar guns. BTW, "the it didnt work in the 70s " doesnt hold water. Same could be said for many things that didnt work in the 70s that work way better and more efficient now.

So very true stickers, but are they willing to spend the money on the technology to make it work. It's my understanding that license sales are falling every year. Thanks to many who try and get our youth involved we still have a chance
But so many are dropping out due to lack of land to hunt. It's become a money sport which a lot can not afford.

I agree with JB. there is not near enough GWs to make a dent in this.
I actually had a non contact encounter with a warden this year. He parked behind my truck for 10 minutes or so and left. I know he could see me up in my box blind. I assume he ran my plate to get a name then ran the name to see if I held a current licence. That is the only encounter I can remember in recent years. Other than that is has been at least 25 years since I'v been checked. And I remember having tags way back when but never had them checked.

The way the system works now there is no way they can predict how many animals are harvested In our state does or bucks yet they reduce harvest or eliminate harvest on public land I can't see what they base this on with no harvest record I have been using the tagging system for years no problem if you have nothing to hide Alabama is also introducing a tagging system I hope it works well for all either way I'll never harvest over my legal limit
