New York is ditching the current tags and essentially allowing the printing of tags on plain paper.

Yes, still need to have back tag if currently required and if it gets wet, it’s on you to replace. Same with tagging a buck.

Really?  Interesting. I'm not surprised. Save the state a ton of money compared to the current system.

Nice. I like it in CT. I print a bunch and fill out my name, ID #, etc. keep them in my wallet, truck, and hunting backpack. Makes it easy. You get 24 hours to report your harvest via computer or phone and you get a confirmation # which you write on the tag to make it legal. CT also has 3 digit numbering system for each town to list harvest. 
I save screenshot of my license on phone.

Too funny .  When they went away from paper years ago they said it would be such an upgrade.  Kinda like paper or plastic bags I guess.

After hunting in Ohio,last year, I think we should go that route. I know digital isn't for everyone, but it was so simple.

You can buy a heavier stock paper other than standard copy paper to print on or even photo paper.  A lot depends on what your printer will handle.  I find laser printer to be quite robust.  They would be durable on stronger paper, and I could see having a plastic pouch when tagging a deer.  I think I would still have a picture on my phone of everything.

Don't you think people are just going to keep reusing tags? You shoot one, get a confirmation code. Tag that deer. Take it home and process. Go back out use another paper tag. Shoot another one, (write your same confirmation code you saved on your phone) on that tag and take it home. How often do we get stopped and checked? I think this might open up the opportunity for someone that is playing by the rules, to say well I can still make it look like I'm playing by the rules, it's only loose leaf paper. 

I get honest people keep it honest. And guys that aren't tagging and carrying their tags around all season is happening now. 

So bottom line is just cheaper for the state? And makes our lives a little simpler gaining the tags.

Those that did it before will keep doing it. I don’t see someone stop following the law because the tag is different.

Easier to write on

Buy a Fisher Space pen ,writes on anything, wet, dry ,upside down .

Tenn. no,tags you use an app on your phone to,report, get a confirmation number . My License was a plastic card ,durable and a nice souvenir.

NY and Wisconsin are the only backwards states with back tags .

So now in NY I’ll carry, paper lic. paper tags , paper back tag, paper crossbow cert. paper crossbow ADA lic . All in an activity that’s outside and often in foul weather .

Better bring some ziploc bags and put the tag in that zip tied to the rack .

The old “ paper “ ones were more like a thin cardboard with a pre punched and reinforced hole that never tore and rain had little effect on . Now we’ll use computer paper lol , have fun filling that out on your thigh in the rain .

One thing that’ll help, I do like  Biz I fill my tags out ahead of time ,except date, and points makes it easier in the field

Pluses an minuses with the online and app use. The app in particular allows for geo locating and tracking your movements. Not that it should be a bother when following the law but there is something fundamental about being tracked by LE.

Buddy got a buck in Missouri in 2022 and submitted the notch tag on his archery buck. Followed the rules. All kosher and above board. We had drove in from Ohio to hunt the cold front in Missouri so we only hunted the last day of the Missouri bow season ($265 gamble lol) before rifle opened. Paid off as my buddy shot a nice buck. I was close to a personal best but never closed distance.

There you have to notch the tag on app and then report the full submission by the end of day.

Between the notch and the full submission, the MDC called my buddy on his cell and asked to meet at our hunting location - which they already knew by the app’s tracking and wanted to meet to review the fact the tag was bought the night before and then used on the last day. They wanted to see the shot site and everything. 

Thankfully, we were able to simply explain over the phone and  use video. We planned on hunting the spot for opening day of gun and really didn’t want to be traipsing around after dark and blow the spot up. But they knew down to the property owner and spot we were hunting off the app.

Is New York going to an app? I didn’t see that anywhere?
