Yes, the deer has to brought to the station. The agent is not required to examine the animal but you are required to have it in your possession.

When the registration program first started, they would come out and put the reg. tag on the deer. The last few years no one cares to even look. I think in a lot of cases the attendant is too busy. Legally I know you are supposed to bring the deer to the reg. station but when no one checks it whats the point.

When I registered deer for approx 10 years, I always checked every single animal to see that it was with and the right sex. Many don't and some know that so they choose to go to the ones that don't even bother to look.

There was just such a situation this last week in the CO's compilation report. A CO checked several people who were registering deer without the deer being in their possession. He informed them that the deer needed to be in their possession at time of registration.

I think that in my situation the law is silly. My reg station NEVER checks the deer and there are NEVER any CO's at said station(atleast when I go there). Its closer to to my garage then it is to town, and much easier to just bring the deer to hang than to load it and lug it to town. However, I will comply and not complain beyond this post. It is what it is.

I know once in a while at the spot where we register our deer, the CO's have been there doing an aging study. Why take the chance and bring the deer in with you. We usually do it on the way out of town, so we are packed and have the deer loaded up anyways.

Heck, the group that hunts down the road from us doesn't even take the right guy sometimes, much less the deer. Not defending the 17 year old girls working at the reg station, but I have seen a line 10 deep in there waiting to register deer and they simply don't have time.

The registration system has become a joke. No one has looked at my deer in many years or even cared that I had one. You could show up in a suit and tie at many of these places and register a deer you didn't have with you and no one would notice. I remember when you had to register all archery killed deer with the local game warden. Just go to some kind of phone, internet or mail survey/registration. I you want to get your deer cleaned right away I feel it is just a waste of time and gas to haul it to town and back to camp just to have someone punch info into a terminal. I am not blaming the clerks at these stores but they are not law enforcement, just don't have the time to go look at deer, and I am sure there employers don't want them leaving the store.

    • We use ventless, but we have enough cracks in ours that we get plenty of fresh air  plus we don't sleep in ours.   I agree with the "door frosting shut" comment! . I do use a homemade "two 12v computer fans" contraption that moves the air around pretty good good, i just mount it above the furnace and it blows the rising heat down and to the sides.
    • I'd be more worried about height.   You might wind up hitting the roof quite a bit when you move your spear unless you hang it with the spear head in the water?   Might want to that out first.
    • I have two decoy jig sticks that just slip in between the rods and 'canvas' on the roof.  A fish can pull some line off it hits hard.  A Velcro loop can be added for additional security.   There are more custom ways of doing it but that works for me.
    • I'll betcha the camera doesn't survive the summer.   And I clean my weeds off and the pull the plug too without grumbling.
    • I know...   It was a joke...   This is Sillytown (capital S)...     I did check to see if the article was legit though.
