    Default New Tag format Next Year ?

    I know this is how rumours get started, I'm aware of that, but the source is reliable so it has some credibility to it so I'll pass it on.

    Went to the MNR office last week to pick up the my hunting tags for the year and was chatting with one of the more senior clerks and he mentioned that the tag system next year will (may?) be going to a paper copy.....printed off your computer after the on-line purchase and to be protected by keeping it a zip lock bag.

    I guess that will eliminate the cost/requirement to have them mailed out.

    The idea raises a lot of admin and enforcement questions that I'm sure the MNR will address before they implement, but I'm sure they will be a lot of unhappy user having to deal with them.

    Anyone else heard any rumblings that may confirm the 'rumour' ?

    Yea Mike, that is a proposed new system. Our game seals will be printable from a computer. Apparently, there will be no need to tag game immediately, or at all even as long as the shooter is in possession of the animal. If not, then it must be tagged . You will need to supply a method to keep the seal fit to read I guess. There was talk of using a zip loc bag. There are apparently big changes coming, but just what they are remains to be seen..

    I guess it is happening..


    GAME TAGS – what we know so far:
    In an effort to offer more choices to purchase licenses and tags, the MNRF has added the “print your tag from home” option. You will still be able to buy them in-person at a Service Ontario location. This just provides the option for hunters to purchase, print and go.
    Details…
    • Comes into effect January 1, 2019, so anyone entering a big game draw or buying a licence before then will still receive the yellow game seals they are used to
    • Anglers and hunters are still required to carry relevant tag(s), an Outdoors Card and Possession Acquisition Licence (if applicable)
    • Hunters will still be required to fill out the tag (i.e. notch as they have in the past) at the point and time of harvest
    • Individuals are responsible for ensuring that their printed paper tag remains intact and readable for enforcement purposes
    • Starting in 2019, the tag will only need to be attached to the animal if it is no longer accompanied by the hunter (i.e. if it is being transferred, or if it is unattended). This means you don’t have to put the paper tag on while bringing the animal out of the bush if you are always with it
    • Printed tags will have security codes built in for enforcement purposes and so that a purchased tag can only be used once, as intended

    Thanks Rick..(I was typing when you posted)

    Great news for guys like me that shot deer on my own property. Always seem silly to put the tag on, take a pic, then cut off of head. From recovering the deer to skinning it usually happens within the hour. Never was a need for a tag.

    I guess the Camp Pole deer will still have to be tagged.

    Conservation officer at the Bancroft hunting association meeting on Saturday confirmed by mid November the tags will change to the new system
    He didn't give a ton of details but basically as long as the tag holder has the tag notched and he's with the animal the tag doesn't need to be affixed to the animal

    I read about this change too. Some US states use a similar system and they use reusable luggage tags and ziplocs to attach the seal to the animal. Maybe we'll get OFAH ones =)

    So how many times can you print out the tag.
