There really are two types of "depredation" type tags. First is the non-property specific tags that are for a region, these are drawn. Second type are landowner and are specific to that landowners property (literally prints it on the tag). These are given to the landowner as "vouchers" that the landowner signs and distributes to the hunters as he chooses, those who in turn takes it to the DWR, pays the antlerless fee and receives the actual hunting license.How do depredation hunts work? I'm assuming the land owner and the DWR agree that animals are doing damage to the land owners property, and so depredation tags are approved.
Who has control over the tags. Does the division contact individuals within the depredation pool, or does the landowner have control over the tags and can distribute them to whomever they want? Can they sell them, and if so, who keeps the money? I think I know the answers to these questions, but I wanted to make sure I understood how it was really happening.
