im going on a back country elk hunt this year and deboning will be necessary, is the head with horns attached enough proof of sex if the rest of the meet is deboned and baged?

Answer:

Preserving Evidence of Sex

 

Deer, elk and pronghorn: If the head or antlers are removed, evidence of sex in the form of testicles, penis, scrotum, udder or vulva must remain naturally attached to the carcass or parts thereof on all harvested big game animals until they reach the

final place of storage or personal consumption, or a commercial meat processing facility.

 

Antlers or horns removed from the head must be left naturally attached to the skull plate where size, point or brow-tine restrictions apply, and they must accompany the carcass or parts thereof.

 

In seasons restricted to mule deer only or white-tailed deer only, if the head is removed, the fully-haired tail must be left naturally attached to the carcass until it reaches the final place of storage or personal consumption, or a commercial meat

processing facility
