    Thats interesting, I contacted Wa. fish and game last week (Mill creek) they told me as long as it came with documentation that it was leagally taken I could buy bear skulls from out of state. Also that I could buy any small game no problem no documentation needed.

    I have raw, beetle cleaned and finished bear skulls if anyone still needs any. Different sizes and prices. All have documentation that is required. I am licensed taxidermist, fur dealer and hold a federal wildlife permit to import and export wildlife products. Pending any specific requirements, I can usually ship anywhere without any issues.

    Not if its illegal in the state where he/she resides, illegal is illegal, reading the states laws, I don't think it even legal to but a cleaned one

    is wildlife enforcement different then fish and game who I spoke with already?
     
  17. Getting a straight answer from officials at the WA Dept. of Fish & Wildlife isn't easy. If you ask 6 people at WDFW, you will likely get 6 different answers.

    The specific regulation you are looking for is WAC 232-12-071: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/wac/default.aspx?cite=232-12-071
    See section 2(c).

    A few years ago I received an answer in writing from the WDFW Criminal Justice Liaison & Administrative Regulations Coordinator. When I asked them to clarify the regulations, they wrote: "Do not buy or sell bear parts with teeth in them unless it’s a 'full mount' or attached to a 'hide.' So, no stand-alone bear skulls with teeth in them."

    It sucks, but it's the law in WA.

    So as long as the teeth are separate its legal? Just have whoever is selling them to you, Blindluck, pull the teeth and ship them in a baggy with the skull, then whem you get the skull reglue the teeth.
     
  19. Nope. Sorry Dczymmek. Here is the appropriate section from the regulations in the link I posted:

    (2) It is unlawful to offer for sale, sell, purchase, or barter the nonedible parts of wild animals, game birds, or game fish if:
    (c) The nonedible parts are of bighorn sheep or mountain goat; bear gall bladders; claws or teeth of bear that are not permanently attached to a full bear skin or mounted bear; or velvet antlers of deer, elk, or moose; and a permit has not been granted by the department allowing for the sale, purchase, or barter of any of the animal parts listed in this subsection (2)(c).
