Hunters be aware of the enforcement of the deer tagging procedures.
Prior to hunting deer, all deer hunters, regardless of age or license status, must obtain deer tags and have them in their possession when hunting deer.
Immediately upon harvesting a deer, the hunter must tag the deer with the appropriate carcass tag before it is moved from the kill site, and the hunter must document the kill on the harvest report card portion of the deer tag license.
The hunter must record the date of the kill and the parish of the kill on the carcass tag. The tag must remain attached to the deer while kept at camp.
Within 72 hours, the hunter must validate the kill and record the validation number on the license.
Last year, agents used the 2008-09 years for hunters to get adjusted to the tagging system. Hunters will not get a grace period this year.
