    Default Removing game seal for pictures

    Anyone see anything wrong with removing the deer seal to take pictures? As long as it's attached while it's being transported i'm ok right?

    Do you mean after you get it home?
    Seals must be applied immediately then remain affixed until the critter gets to your residence. To put one on then remove it temporarily for pics is against the spirit of the law.

    It's ok with me, but not with the rules.

    No not necessarily after i get it home, could be after I shoot it and tagged it and then want to take some nice pictures (without the big yellow seal). Or with the gang the following morning at the deer camp.

    I checked the laws and stuff and didnt see anywhere where it says that the seals need to remain affixed until i get it home, just while it is being transported. i figured if it's not being transported, I could take it off (as long as i put it back on while transporting it) I'm not too concerned with the "spirit of the law" but rather if this would be illegal or not.

    My understanding of the law is that it needs to be remain affixed as long as the deer is in one piece (wording is carcass).

    Definitely transporting it whole without a tag is a problem - see page 86 of the regs.

    I don't think the CO would be okay with it if he found you with an untagged deer in your garage and a used/removed tag sitting on a shelf. I can't see him buying that.

    If you really want the tag out of the picture, wrap your hand around it. I never really found that a tag ruined a hero shot though.

    Its illegal. Seal must remain attached until such time as the carcass is prepared for consumption.

    That only applies to wild turkey. If i'm wrong, can you please show where it says this applies to deer?
