    Hello! May I ask how to get my application approved? I am a wildlife rehabber, and I applied for a salvage permit to use salvaged bones in art, but was denied. How is art different than taxidermy I wonder?

    We don't apply for a salvage permit, we apply for a permit to possess and mount migratory birds that customers provide that they themselves harvested under a license, any part of the bird not used in the mount must be returned to the customer or disposed of properly. Salvaging bones is entirely different. Using them for art, which will possibly be sold is illegal. No parts of wild migratory birds save for feathers can be sold or bartered.

    I'm not entirely clear on that. If I'm not mistaken, they can only be used for pillows and insulation in coats. My advice would be to ask the US fish and wildlife, don't take my word for it. I don't enforce the laws.

    You are supposed to keep a log book. I don't. At the end of each year, I print out a list of ducks and their owners and save it...never been audited.

    I recommend keeping the log book. I have been checked.

    The tag is kept with the bird in the shop. After the client picks up the bird he can do anything he wants with the tag. My clients usually take it off in the shop and leave it so I staple it to my invoice and file it. It sounds like you ordered the record system from Breakthrough or one of the supply companies. That is all the record keeping you are required to maintain. Fill out the entries completely and keep the binder in the shop.
