Several of the guys I hunt with checked their deer the day after kill and had no problems. They did not reed the regs and thought they had 24 hrs. like last year. I think DNR is giving everyone a little slack the first year. I checked my deer from the base of my tree stand Sat., for me the new system works good. I hunt holidays and always had to load my deer back up the next day and drive to a check station to get them checked. Now all of my deer are checked when I leave the farm.
