What are the best Ear Tags to use for Deer or Exotics?
Start with size:
If you keep your Whitetail deer in a pen then use a smaller Deer Ear Tag to keep younger deer from nibbling on the Deer Tags. If you are having problems with deer chewing ear tags try free choice mineral.
Small Size Deer tags - 2" or smaller.
Y-Tex Mini, Sheep and rounds and buttons
Allflex Medium, Sheep and rounds and buttons
Duflex Medium, Sheep and rounds and buttons

Some producers like a larger tag so that they can more easily read the management number information.

Deer's ears are fragile- handle with care and apply tags carefully. Using an antiseptic solution will often help healing time after tags are applied.
State Unique Numbers
Some states require a State, Herd or Unique number imprinted on Deer Ear Tags. These required numbers can be imprinted above a large herd management number or used as the management number. Herd numbers are often put on the back of Deer ear tags or imprinted on the button.
Some Deer Ear Tags are used as Advertising with a brand or logo.
A few of our most popular smaller tags are:
AllFlex Medium Female with Button
Y-TEX Mini Tag with Button
Sheep Style tags work great as DEER EAR TAGS
Buttons can be used to imprint state Id numbers or animal unique numbers
Some WHITETAIL Breeders and especially EXOTIC BREEDERS like a larger Deer Ear Tag
so that they can read the visual information from a distance
Some WHITETAIL DEER BREEDERS like to use Deer Ear Tags as marketing pieces
promoting their Herd and displaying a custom Brand or Logo on the Deer Ear Tag.
These can be set up on CUSTOM EAR TAGS by all Manufacturers.
