State Rep. Morgan talks deer, turkey tagging

A bill calling for required tagging and harvest reporting of deer and turkeys has been introduced in the Mississippi House of Representatives. Rep. Ken Morgan (R-Morgantown), who authored House Bill 1028, offered thoughts on the bill.

One of the most common arguments against tagging deer and turkeys is that too many hunters will not tag or report their harvests. Comments on social media indicate some feel conservation officer numbers are too low to enforce bag limits, making tagging ineffective. Morgan feels differently.
