And to address the anger about large landowners in NM, do you have high fencing operations out there? Also, isn't NM one of the states that you can actually purchase the wildlife that is on your property? I think there is an acre requirement, but I know in some states a large-scale landowner can buy the wildlife (certain $ amount per animal) and then manage them as they want.

There is some high fencing but not common. As far as I know the land owners cannot buy the animals on their property. If they could they wouldnt be getting the tags from the state and then reselling. I think I see where you are going with this, but the point is they are making their living off of state owned animals.

In next years legislature there is supposed to be discussion on this problem.

I think a better soulution would be to give half the tags free to the landowner in return for the other half being issued to the public. The public would then be granted a right to tresspass. If the landowner wouldnt consent to that the he applys for a draw just like evryone else.

The "tagging" laws in Tennessee have changed recently. There is no requirement for one to "tag" any deer harvested, except to register the harvest online (or at a check station) where you will receive a permanent confirmation number. This confirmation number must then accompany the deer when transported to processor or taxidermist.

So, I believe the answer is that as a landowner you must still register your harvest online or at a check station. I believe this is so the state can keep a good record of actual harvest numbers.

Ohio has the same call in and get your number to write on the tag.
