Can mounted deer be legally sold in MD?Contributors to this thread:
I have a question. I live in WV. My brother,who lived in Maryland died last year. He had a legally harvested and scored Boone and Crockett buck from southern Maryland. (172 I think) . His wife dosen't want it. Can mounted deer be legally sold in Maryland?
Thanks, in advance
I dont see why not. Can you sell them in other States?
Most states, but some states have funny laws about selling wildlife parts.
You are right- some state prohibit the sale of game animal parts. I think its OK to sell mounted heads in MD- at least I have seen them advertised- but a call to DNR should give you the answer. or call some of the local taxidermists.
I have seen several deer heads for sale at "Sam's butcher shop" and my buddy had bought a unclaimed mount from a taxidermist a few years back. I think it's totally legal. Just not legal to sell game MEAT.
Just about every week at Foxwell auctions in Cambridge Md. they are auctioned off..To me that's the same as selling and I would think if Buddy could do it then it's o.k....If not then he's breaking the law and doesn't know it or does He?...
I was talking to a D.N.R. Oficer last night and ha told me that Npart or parts of a deer can be sold in the state of MD. He also told me that if you have a deer or a bear mount you better have the tag with it that you got when you checked it in, this goes for all antlers that you have collected over the years. I have a few found buck skuls that I came across while in the woods and he said that they are illegel to have unless you call the D.N.R. and have a officer come out and tag it in the place you found it. I asked about sheds and he said it was a grey area???
no parts of a deer or mounts are legal to sell in maryland. possession of any deep parts requires a possession tag. i have had to acquire a number of these from dnr in the past. antler lamps, sheds, mounts, etc no legal for sale in maryland, check the law
