I have a friend with a bull elk tag. He hopes to kill an elk, but does not have the resources to get the meat processed. He would like me to take all the meat for him to get it processed. If I take all of the meat, but he keeps the horns does he still keep his tag with the antlers? Is the proxy statement still good for the totality of the meat? Also is the proxy statement good for check-in at a sanctioned processing facility?
Thanks for the clarification
Any person who transports any wildlife for another or receives any wildlife for cleaning, processing, as a gift, or for strorage must have a written Proxy Statement signed by the taker of the animal showing the name, address, and license number of the taker, and the number, kind, date taken, and the name of the person transporting (see page 78 of Big Game Seasons and Rules).
The taker of the animal can keep the antlers but the tag must accompany the meat. The proxy and tag will be required of a commercial meat processor.
