Sorry, new hunter questions will flow from me for a bit. The tag arrived today and it showed putting it around a moose like antler of a deer like gambrel. For Coues (if I'm stupidly lucky to fill my tag) does it need to be on the head gear or on the hind leg?

 

Thanks!

Head is better, depending on how you handle the meat in the field.

Agreed.  Like Vowell said, either are legal.  But, to me, attaching to the antlers is more convenient and cleaner.  And it keeps your proof that it was an "antlered deer" with all your tag info for easy inspection if a G&F Wildlife Manager wants to take a look-see.  (Plus, if you bone out your deer on the mountain, you won't be packing out the gambrels, much less transporting them home.)

On velvet deer, I sprinkle dirt on all of the sticky part except the last inch on each side.
