- For a deer, elk, or antelope, seal the tag around the antler or horn or through the gambrel of a hind leg.
- For a javelina, bighorn sheep, mountain lion, buffalo, or bear, seal the tag through the gambrel of a hind leg.
- For a turkey, sandhill crane, or pheasant, seal the tag around the neck or a leg.
