Is It Legal To Sell Or Buy Taxidermy?

The laws are different in every state, and within each state are more specific laws defining which animals are legal to sell and which are not. In the state of Washington law WAC 232-12-071(2)WAC a person cannot sell, purchase, or barter, the mounts of bighorn sheep or mountain goat, as well as edible and non-edible parts of wild animals, game birds or game fish. However, they may offer for sale, purchase, or barter mounts of other big game animals without a department permit, as long as doing so is not prohibited by federal regulations, and the animals were not knowingly taken in violation of any law or regulation in any jurisdiction.
