Interesting about calling in a tag to find out if it's safe to eat. I've heard something about bears not being tranquilized and relocated during hunting season because of this issue.
Now how about this question. If you shoot an animal with an ear tag, notch your tag and gut it, then later call and find out it can't be consumed, do you get a new tag?

Yes, you get a new tag.  This has been discussed on this site before.  Like all drugs it takes sometime to metabolize from the system.

I shot a bear with a yellow ear tag a few years ago and yes, I had to call the number on the tag to see if enough time had elapsed that the bear was safe to consume because of the drugs that were administered at time of capture.  They were also interested in where the bear was killed and what he was doing at that time.  They seemed pleased that he was eating berries and "doing what bears should be doing"  Probably a relocated nuisance bear..

Ever get any info on the bear?  Out of all the bears i get on cam every year ive only had 2 with ear tags, one of which had a collar.  Both scrawny little youngsters.  Ive also had one cow elk with collar and tags, and 2 collared wolves.
