.I thought maybe the DNR would need it to compare cut marks like rifling on a bullet

this law was put into place at the request of farmers finding arrows when they hay it is more for them to find the owners of the arrows it is with respect that if you hunt in a farmars field shoot & don't recover your arrow you let the farmer know where about the arrow is so he can be careful haying that area it is a dumb law & was almost taken off the books last year but a bunch of farmers came to the meeting with handful of arrows that they had found just that year. It is still a law it is a pain to do but I understand some of the reasoning

We don't have that law/rule here in ky. Seems like only good of it would be catching and idintifying a trespasser or potcher who lost n arrow but like most only honest people are going to abide by the laws anyways. So I think its a pointless rule.

Another thing I don't like about that rule is, What if a bad guy happens to find someone else's arrow, Now they got "YOUR" Arrow to do with as they please....
How could you prove your innocent in that situation ??

Bruce I think about that a lot & I am sure others do too that may be part of the point
to get people not to just fling arrows & to look harder for them
this is why I use lighted nocks not worried about the bad guy as much as I am losing a $25 setup

On the Flip side of this I think NY has some good rules
like
You have to fill your tag out completely before touching your harvest but do not have to attach it to your kill till it is at your vehicle or camp, had a few NH deer we had to flashlight seach for after losing it dragging to truck
you can shoot as many deer as you have tags for before checking in any
Check in is all automated phone in
