We have the same type of law here regarding the tag staying with the meat, yet we also can donate the deer to the food pantrys and like I said, I doubt they give the family the carcass tag because I think each deer gets given to multiple families. I even think the DNR helps promote to get the deer donations...lol.
They have several of them here. The deer geos to a processor who has been tested and approved, he butchers the meat according to USDA guidelines, and whatever group wants the meat pays the processor's fee. The processor is trained and required to inspect the meat, and to report any abnormalidies. That process has changed several times in the past 10 years, as have the laws about deer meat. I will check the current state of the law before I donate meat.
