It's sooner than you think, if not this year then next! I thinks it's a mistake. Especially when you try to have an EAB season, who's looking at the deer! Buck will end up in someone's garage phoned in as a doe!
How is that any differnt then a buck ending up in someone garage with no call at all like they do now?
your still taking a chance of getting cought and poaching will not stop no matter how you check your deer in.
we dont inforce it the co's do and dont worry some one will get greedy and get busted but after a fewjerks get busted and it costem 10g's it will make alot more honest me nme for one you would have to be nuts to risk that kind of fine
I think the big problem with check stations is most are closed by 5 or 6 and if you shoot on Saturday late (bow season) you can't check till Monday. This is a big hassel. They should have a warden checking deer at say Assimpink late for that reason.
