The electronic tag submission is a great idea, as long as you are in an area with service and don’t get stopped by a warden before it’s submitted.

Agree there are a lot of what if’s. They’ll just have to work out the kinks.

The paper Washington uses for tags/licenses works great.

What about when the Washington paper gets wet or sits in pack or wallet too long and fades so bad u can't even read it . My elk tag last year was unreadable to a warden and in an area that was a special tag thank  God I had printed off receipt and and had that paper they emailed or ij would have been SOL  it's pretty common for it too happem.had it happen with punch cards and other portions of tags/licz

I was lucky I heard about other people having issues with the ink fading, so I checked mine. I caught it before my ink was completely illegible. I ended up literally writing “elk tag” or “bear tag” on the backs of the appropriate tags with Sharpie. No idea if that would have worked but what else are we supposed to do if the products provided to us to be legal and responsible fail so bad?

We had to print our license and permit for our Mtn goat hunt on kodiak last year. Week of the wettest I've ever been out hunting. After a week of being folded up in a cheapo sandwich ziplock and it still looked like a folded up piece of dry printer paper :chuckle: I think we are getting a bit doom and gloom here. It'll be ok. If you are super concerned about this, use a real top quality ziplock brand ziplock freezer bag.  Who is gonna be the first company to release a $100 high performance backcountry license ziplock :chuckle:

Or you could vacuum pack and seal the tag until you're ready to use it  :dunno:

I also have never had an issue with a tag of any kind in a freezer bag.

my license and tag is always in a little sandwich bag that stays in my bino harness pouch. Never had an issue with it and have hunted in some pouring rain and dumping snow

right. It's just really a non issue.  Have a little forethought in what a guy is doing.  I'm excited about eventually going paperless and punching tags on an app. Lot less to carry around. Though I'll be a bit sad because I do keep a lanyard of punched tags with a little scribble of what animal it was and if someone was with me.  Paperless would mean an end to that little tradition.

I completely disagree.

I see no viable way around this and am therefore going to quit hunting.

Karl and Dan-O, you both crack me up.

Back on topic, not only does this speed up the initial results by weeks I would assume this changes the deadline to purchase tags and gives the guys that don't draw a quicker turn around to buy returned tags.
