n If you're getting your trophy mounted, it's important to remember that state law requires the deer harvest carcass tag to remain with the head at the taxidermist, and that a second hand-made tag containing the name, address and license number of the person who harvested the deer and the location of the harvest remain with the rest of the carcass going to the processor.
