He is a nice one. I see no tag on it. In Illinois they changed the law on finding dead bucks back to haveing the DNR come out and put a non removeable tag on it. For years it was this way. Then for a few years you only had to have it taged if you were going to have it mounted. Last year they changed it back to all haveing a DNR tag on it.
Also, it is a wise thing to fasten the license of any mounted deer to the back of it. If for any reason the DNR comes into your home the proof of taking this deer legally is right there. If there is any question of any mount in your possession, YOU have to prove it was taken legally.
never say never
patience is the companion of wisdom
