I think he is more concerned about getting it registered and in the freezer right away with this hot butt weather we have going on right now....... For bow, it's 5pm the day after it was killed for cwd units, otherwise its 5 pm 3 days after the kill or 5pm the day after season which ever somes first for all other units. For gun, its 5 pm the day after the kill for cwd units and 5pm the day after season for all other units. Most registration stations are open until 8pm and most gas stations that register will do it for you after 8pm even though they don't like to sometimes and if they don't want to tell them how important it is that they register it for you so the deer will not spoil, as it will over night in these hot conditions. Hope this helps. Good luck. WCL

Deer Registration
Deer must be kept intact, except for field dressing and skinning, prior to registration.
The lower legs, up to the tarsus joint (“ankle or hock”) on the hind legs and up to the
carpus joint (“wrist or knee”) on the front legs, may also be removed. If the skin or
legs are removed prior to registration, they must be kept with the carcass until after
the deer is registered.
Deer may be skinned and quartered by persons holding a Class A or B
Disabled Permit. All parts must be presented at the time of registration.
In addition to the tagging requirements,
all deer must be registered at a DNR Deer
Registration Station. Registration forms are available at deer registration stations.

registered no later than 5:00 p.m. on the third day after the deer was killed or by

5:00 p.m. the day after the season closes, whichever occurs first.
Location: All deer killed must be registered in the unit of kill or in an adjoining unit.

sample for disease testing. Special arrangements can be made at the time of registration

for deer that are to be mounted. Failure to provide or allow a sample to be
