Transfer of Wildlife Resources
A person may give, leave, receive, or possess any species of legally taken wildlife resource, or part of the resource, that is required to have a tag or permit attached or that is protected by a bag or possession limit if the wildlife resource is accompanied by a Wildlife Resource Document (WRD) (PDF 174.9 KB) from the person who killed or caught the wildlife resource.
- For deer or antelope, a properly executed WRD
shall accompany the wildlife resource or part of the resource until it reaches
its final destination and is quartered.
For turkey, the WRD must remain attached until the turkey reaches its final
destination and is finally processed (see definitions).
- NO WRD is required to possess a wildlife resource that is required to be tagged if the wildlife resource is tagged.
- For all other wildlife resources, a properly executed WRD
shall accompany the wildlife resource until it reaches the possessor's permanent
residence or a cold storage/processing facility, except:
- NO WRD is required if a person receiving the wildlife resource does not exceed the possession limit (exception: see Migratory Game Birds - Documentation).
- A person may use the online WRD form (PDF 174.9 KB) or a hand written WRD document that includes the same required information may be used.
NOTE: No wildlife resource document is required when the entire carcass of a deer (including head, which may be skinned or unskinned) or antelope (including head, which must be unskinned) is given to, or transported by, another person if the tag from the hunter's license and other required permits or the pronghorn permit remains attached until the carcass reaches its final destination and is quartered.
