I was given a regular deer tag when I asked for a whitetail tag. Can I switch to the tag I wanted?

Answer

The following information can be found on page 98 in the 2013 Big Game Seasons and Rules Proclamation.

"Hunters may exchange a general season deer tag for white-tailed deer tag at any Fish and Game Office. The exchange must be completed before the first hunt opening date of the tag you currently posses". 

Once a season has been open for the tag you posses, we cannot exchange it for the other tag type.
