All deer harvested must be taken to a designated check-in station by the hunter in the county where the kill was made before the deer may be taken from the county. A field tag must be filled out before the deer is taken from the site of the kill, and check-in must be within 24 hours. The carcass may be field-dressed but not dismembered before check-in. Dogs cannot be used to hunt deer. Deer may not be hunted while

swimming or taking refuge in water.
