The Texas Parks and Wildlife tags listed on this page meet the requirements for SB 810. More information can be found in the TPWD Breeder Deer Identification Requirements Overview.
This bill covers the regulation of identification of whitetail deer in the State of Texas. Deer being sold to another producer are required to have a visual tag that includes the unique number at the top, and individual animal’s ID at the bottom. Deer will also be required to have an 840 USDA EID tag or implant, which requires a Premises ID to order. Premises ID information can be obtained by calling TAHC (Texas Animal Health Commission) at 512-719-0777 or visit their website
