My friend called me and told me she was going through Wisconsin and has been seeing many deer on the side of the road with tags on them. I had to look this up and let her know why. Wisconsin spends about $467,000 just to haul away dead deer, it has changed several rules. Wisconsin last year finally began allowing drivers, or anyone who wanted, a freshly killed highway deer to remove the carcass, provided police were notified as soon as possible. This year, the DNR also allows the motorist or a third party who claims the deer to donate the meat to a charity or other party that will use the venison. If they can get more people using the meat, they'll pay a lot less to dispose of those carcasses. They'd much rather have it cost them just a dime for the free tag.
