I harvested or found an animal with a collar, band or tag — Now what?

If you harvest or find an animal with a collar, band or tag, you are not in trouble.

Please contact your nearest Fish and Game Office as soon as possible to report on or return the marker. Returning a collar, band or tag provides biologists with valuable insight into the animal's movements, habitat and lifespan.

When reporting on or returning a collar, band, or tag, be sure to include this information:
