    I suggest reading the regs in the area you hunt and then calling the wildlife officer (proof of sex is often a concern). If your going to bone one out, you will need a good pack and know how to pack it. Plus if its a trophy to mount, you will need to talk with your taxidermist to see how he wants you to cape.

    You need to be very aware of proof of sex, especially on doe/fawn tags as most buck tags are either sex. Many, many years ago I got a citation for not having proof of sex on a doe that was all packaged and wrapped and in a small freezer in the field. It was mixed with a buck and I guess the warden wanted to make a point....he did! I did the butchering myself and did not leave any evidence of sex on an edible piece of meat on the doe antelope.. Same rules apply to deer.

    I thought the proof of sex was more for bucks then doe/fawn to stop people from killing a buck way back somewhere and just bringing the head out and then killing a doe close to the road for meat. My girlfriend was asking why I brought those pieces home with my antelope. lol

    In MT proof of sex is required regardless of whether your tag or permit is either sex, buck only, or antler less. It must be left naturally attached.

    The only one I was told didn't need sex proof was either sex, but that was Wyoming.

    I learned another interesting WG&F Regulation. I had an either sex tag and had the antelope quartered and hanging in game bags at camp. No issue with sex. I attached the completed tag to one of the hind quarters. It was a very windy day so prior to leaving camp to help my dad and brother try and fill their tags I slipped the game bag over the tag. When we returned to camp just after dark the Game Warden followed us in. I was issued a written warning for not having the tag attached in a visible location. I was told a Warden is not allowed to look in the game bag to see if it was tagged. Technically I could have been cited but he gave me a break because it was attached and properly filled out.

    I shot a cow elk in Colo years ago on either sex bow hunt. I kept evidence of sex but wasn't attached. My buddies 12 year old told us when we were quartering it out to keep it attached but we didn't listen. Who listens to a kid right? Got a citation for it as deserved. Makes me pretty careful since. I keep regs with me and read them.

    ***That is a bunch of baloney to even issue you a warning if it was attached and all you were doing was protecting the tag from being lost. That's the kind of crap that makes other LEOs look bad when you get one that doesn't use any common sense. FYI a Warden has the right to search your vehicle, tent, trailer, coolers, or anything else out in the field that he wants to without a warrant. If they think there has been a violation and have enough proof that they think it's at your residence then they either have to ask for permission or go get a search warrant. Wyoming used to require that evidence of sex be kept attached if you filled a doe/fawn or cow/calf tag. Now all they require is that it be carried with you until the animal is processed. We merely cut the udder off and put it in a baggy to keep with the boned out animal in order to comply with the new requirement.
