Metal deer tags?
Back when I was a kid and just starting to hunt, deer were few and far between. It wasn't unusual to have a left over tag at the end of the season. The tags back then were made of metal and permanently snapped together when you tagged your deer. I started keeping my old tags and snapped them around the horns of an old antique 4 point rack I had on my bedroom wall. Am I the only one or do some of you guys still have some around?

How I long for those days to return. Not only permanent tags, but check stations. It would sure cut back on the number of deer not being registered. As it is now, unless you have a deer commercially processed, or mounted, checking the deer in is not necessary. I'd bet at least 15% of harvested deer go un-reported.

Yeah, I remember those days. I've got a set of antlers in the garage that has a metal tag on them. You are correct on there not being many deer back then. Just getting to see a deer back then was an accomplishment.

I remember those tags,they only had them the first few years I hunted as far as I remember but I seen a many of them from my dads day. He still has a couple laying around somewhere. I to miss the check stations,they were just another level of excitement.

No one could beat the metal tags. I'm mean....poachers would shake from fear by just having to handle one. Paper tags just turned everyone into an outlaw."I hate rude behavior in a man. I wont tolerate it."
