Gotta keep track of them too, & prove you didn't violate, plus pass a background check for you and any assistant shooters on the permit. You can use or donate the meat now; once upon a time it had to be left to lay, but that has changed as far as I know.

Sounds like you need to get your DNR friend & your farmer neighbor together for a little chat...
