Ask Fish and Game: Proxy Statements

Q. If I am transporting game for a friend, do I need a proxy statement?

A. Yes. Any person who transports any wildlife for another person or receives any wildlife for cleaning, processing, as a gift, or for storage must have a written proxy statement signed by the person who killed the animal specifying the numbers and kinds of wildlife, date taken, hunter's name and address, license, tag and permit numbers. The tag should remain attached to the carcass. A proxy form is available on Page 78 of the Big Game Seasons and Rules.
