Cervid: Whitetail Deer
We have had to do this all along. Dept of Ag wants 2 different forms of Id ( Silver tags or Microchips) And the DEC wants a farm tag that they can see from a distance to tell it is a farm deer. Our herd check is done by our Dept of Ag every year at no cost to us. They also come and take our samples at no cost to us. It is kinda a pain and im sure for those states that never had to do it. They have a paper trail for everything that way. We cant move deer even across the road without a permit!

On a slightly different note- what did you do with the two bucks that cost over $400 each, and what happened? I can't imagine just darting deer, tagging and testing (drawing blood) would average out to $250 each, but it depends how long the vet is there. I believe the other poster was saying that it cost $250 for the vet to come out and do the herd inspection.


Yes, I could sell in Ohio, no testing.



No tagging requirements.



The two bucks that died after the vet worked on them, were dragged back in the corner of my field, and were buzzard and coyote bait. I never thought about it until now, but I wonder if the tranq. had any effect on the scavengers.



Got a quote from the vet for 12 deer, $1500, he provides everything. Add that to my $5,000 yearly feed bill, and it makes it hard to break even. My labor figured at $0/ hour of course.



So here's what I am still unsure of. The ODNR paperwork I got this year, reads like the one time DNR permit is for new farmers. The AG. meeting, said only shooting preserves will deal with DNR inspections. The Ag App. says pen inspected by Vet., they wouldn't both inspect it....would they? but I read in this thread that some are being inspected.

Hi, yes, you will get a inspection this year from BOTH the dept of ag(vet) and also the div. of wildlife. In the paperwork you got from the div of wildlife, it tells you not to send the money in till you have had your pen inspection by your game warden. If you have not had your inspection already, then your to contact your warden and set up a time and they come out and will also collect your $40 fee to them as well.

If you have already had your div of wildlife 2013 pen inspection, you can send the check to your warden for your lifetime prop permit.



I am glad after reading a couple of the later post at least someone else sees the fees now charged to the farmer. You have not gotten any benefit what so ever from the fees and new rules. Just now dealing with more people for the same thing with way more regulations to meet.

thanks Brookfield, but I sent the 40 to the DNR already.



If the DNR has to inspect your pen first, why send the form? Better to have you set up an inspection, he brings the form, and you are done.



It seems redundant that a pen that has held deer for 10 years, has to be inspected twice.

I guess when I read the pen inspection info, it said have your pen inspected BEFORE you put any deer in it.



I just assumed that meant new pens.

Had the vet out Thursday to tag my deer, he said the DNR may or may not inspect, he inspected, and he said the Dept. of Ag. vet will also inspect the pen.
