Your first step after the kill is to tag the animal.
- Tagging an animal means you are claiming the animal as yours by properly notching your tag and attaching it to the animal’s carcass. See the Montana Big Game Hunting Regulations for the proper tagging procedure.
- Make sure you keep evidence of sex with the carcass from the field to the point of processing. The Montana Big Game Hunting Regulations also clearly explains this procedure.
- Information is also available online on the FWP Hunting Regulations website.
