    not sure on the game laws there, but its always a pretty good idea to leave proof of sex attached to the meat you are packing out. Other than that, throw the tag in the meat bag.

    i was always told the tag goes with the major portion of the meat. you could call the local FWP and they tell for sure though

    AZ does not require proof of sex. The tag is for antlerless elk, not necessarily a cow. You could shooT a male elk as long as it does not have antlers that extend through the skin. (button bull, so to speak.) You need to be able to produce the head (showing no antlers) should the G&F ask for it. Slice a hole in the ear and put the tag there.

    In idaho you must leave proof of sex attatched to the largest peice of meat and the tag must be with it as well.
    Dont make no sense to me but Had that discussion with F&G this year.
    This means you have to cut everything up smaller by the book

    Skin out the head and leave the tag attached to the ear. You don't need to have the skull and jaw bone.
