I have the biggest challenge complying with the tag requirements. I wrote on the tag with a ball point pen and by the time I got it back to camp it had smeared. Anybody have a secret way to handle this?

Yep, plus they work better in cold weather.

Permanent markers, especially the fine points, dry out so quick, you'd have to buy a new one at the beginning of every season. The cheapest ball points don't smear that easy, like the kind they give away. You can't use the nice gel ones on tags; they smear if you look at them wrong.

Sharpie. Buy a new one every September for my backpack, much cheaper than a fine.

Yes you are spot on. But I keep mine in a ziploc bag with a few drops of water. Zip it shut and it doesn't dry out a bit. The ball points just gum up and won't write on tags because of the coating.

I keep plastic sandwich bags in my cleaning kit. I fill out the tag and drop in the bag then electrical tape the bag/tag to the leg or antler. Never have any issues and GW can read tag without removing it.
