Question by small game. Uploaded on November 19, 2009
This is straight from CDOW's reg. brochure. Since an elk is friggin big just attatch the tag to one of the quarters ( I attach it to the one with the evidence of sex attached) with a zip strip do not forget to mark the tag date. CDOW likes to setup random check points on the roads and they will nail you so do not make a mistake.
1. You can be cited for illegally transporting game animals even if someone
else made an error. When you transport carcasses or processed meat:
a. Carcasses must be properly tagged. You must meet evidence of sex and
antler-point requirements. Hunters must keep their own license.
b. Carcass tags or donation certificates must accompany processed game meat.
2. Carcass tags must be securely attached to carcass, not antlers, or
must accompany processed meat.
3. To ship by commercial carrier, the license, photocopy of license, carcass
tag or donation certificate must accompany carcass or processed meat.
4. Hunters transporting game through national parks or monuments must
follow federal regulations. Contact National Park Service for information.
Most states (at least mine) requires the tag attached to the largest piece of meat. Don't know if Colorado requires it.
Read the friggin' regs and get the straight skinny!
Sounds pretty vague. I'm surprised. Section 1a is probably where a person can get in trouble. Guess he'll have to look somewhere else for what it takes to demonstrate sex and antler size. Perhaps that aspect of the regs dictates that the tag must be attached to section of meat with scrotum on it.
I am also surprised how many posts show up asking questions about regulations from guys who obviously haven't read them. Kinda scary.
i carry a piece of heavy wire along with my license and transport tags. just thread the wire through the tag then attach/stick it thru the critters ear.
regulations, look at them, they will tell you!
You come to Colorado WITHOUT reading the Regs it may be the last time your allowed.....
