If you don't fill your tag the first day, however, leave your stand hanging. Reseal the tarsal gland in an airtight container and pack it out. Also, bring home your drag rags and either wash them or throw them away and have some new ones handy. "The first hunt may be your best chance," Bell says, "but it's certainly not your only. So try again tomorrow."
