Why do you need to keep the tag on for a year? I've consulted google and am more confused now, some saying you can remove when the animal has been processed, other saying the tag is only a guide. Discussions got interesting when you hit and kill a buck or find one dead.

My immediate thought went to rhinos but then again they are poached and therefore all rule of law out the window.
I suspect the length of time it has to be attached changes in every province in Canada or state in the US. The thinking behind it is so that people don’t shoot multiple animals, wait some time and then claim they were “sheds” or carcasses found in the bush. Or shoot a buck, tag it, and then later in the season or the next year shoot another and “move” the tag from one to another. A lot of guys will mount sheds/ pickups as they regards those just as valuable as an actual hunted buck. I suspect the tag and timeframe has something to do with the natural drying process. But it is by no means a fail safe method to stop poaching or dishonest hunters and their tagging shenanigans.
If we find a dead animal with antlers attached we should phone the Conservation officers and report it. If we want the antlers they will come and do an investigation to determine the cause of death, and whether you were involved in its death. They are extremely thorough in their work and have tremendous resources to their disposal. The fines for not tagging something you shot or wasting meat (leaving the animal in the bush) can be as high as $7000.
But the tagging system has its flaws. I counted 7 shot deer in my farm one year. Some were gut shot and the shooter did not bother to track it, or they shoot it close to the fence, and hope it drops there so they can quickly pull it under the fence and off the property. If they shoot it and it runs, they leave it not wanting to risk getting caught on land that is posted with no hunting/ no trespassing signs

As a kid, our council house backed onto the Powis Castle Estate, they have loads of deer, we used to go scavenging antlers, but used to get warnings not to go into the areas when they were in rut... :biggrin:
They said I’d be no good at poetry because of my dyslexia, but so far I’v made 3 pots and a vase and going well

Shed hunting is a pretty big "sport". Some guys train their dogs to sniff out antlers. A friend of mine collects hundreds of sheds every year and then sell them per lb to guys that make knife handles, light chandeliers etc. Big money in collecting sheds

Should grind them up and sell to the Chinese as "rhino horn"  Might save some rhino's.

They actually do grind it up. I think they prefer elk antlers.
It was in the news the other day that they caught some “poachers” shooting bear and taking the gall bladders. Nothing is safe anymore
