Time is ticking on putting in for a 2017 East River deer tag.

Application deadline for snail mail applications is postmarked by Friday September 1. You can apply online until 8:00 A.M. on Wednesday September 6.

Don't forget that is 8:00 A.M. as in the morning. I screwed up on that last year applying for a West River tag. Don't make that mistake, just get your application in.

Speaking of West River, there are still a number of doe tags left over in eight units. Yeah, they are doe tags, but does taste just as good as bucks. And hunting is better than not hunting.
