Shipping Tanned Black Bear Into California?

Discussion in 'Lifesize Mammals' started by Cascade Biological Supply, Mar 19, 2023.

  1. Does anyone know if it is legal or illegal? Google comes down squarely on both sides of this issue. Bought in Washington, but can it be shipped into California?

    t is illegal to sell bear parts in California. However, you have the right to retain any and all bear parts of the bear you take, except the skull which becomes the property of CDFW.

    Except this person didn't take the bearskin. They bought it. Go to your government agencies and get the answers you seek.

    If hide was purchased outside of CA the person should be able to bring it in. But doesn’t sound like a transaction with black bear hide can take place in the state.

    They just want to remove a tooth for aging and then the skull is yours.

    Send it to the guy ... dont give a return address on the outside of the box .. When you know its a dumb law ignore it .. besides what are they gonna do to ya ...you live in a free state tell Ca to bleep off ...
    We still cant buy ammo without jumping thru hoops and cant order online either ...Unconstitutional and going away but I get ammo shipped to me all the time from good people who ignore dumb so called laws....
    Understand something folks ... Compliance to stupid will get you were we are now ... Thanks to COWARDs America is well on its way to never recovering from the deliberate damage done by a CHEATER ... IGNORE STUPID and Stand UP

    Are the Mexican cartels dealing in this stupid animal and bird parts, NO ! There’s no real money there. You need to be running fentanyl and illegals into Calif not animal skins or bird feathers. There good business people , we’re just dumb taxidermists that are afraid to pick up a roadkill blue jay just hit with the thought of preserving it for posterity. Tomorrow when you ride by there it’s road pizza , destroyed forever.
    You don’t go to jail anymore for anything anymore, thank you George Soros.
    When our government manages to confiscate all the guns like they did in Germany, Zimbabwe and other country’s , at least we can look forward to the Mexican cartels running real assault weapons into the US , not the junk you buy in gun stores now.

    Your correct other than this part ... This will only happen to the far too many cowards of America that are responsible for allowing a cheater to ruin us , Cus there are at least 3% I know for certain are ready now and will FIGHT ....We have them already and there's Only one way they can have them .... Any one thinking gun confiscation is truly STUPID and any America attempting to do so for an idiot ... will suffer serving the devil they become enemies to all Americans .....
    The Cartels are here bigger than ever in America thanks to SFJBama and Thanks to that open border that will haunt America till the end of time . If you dont Think they'll Cheat in 2024 ,YOUR STUPID ... Cus these two bastards ruining us deliberately and all the Idiots that helped cheat to steal the white house cant afford to loose ... couple reasons , all the deliberate destruction to ruin us will be for nothing if they dont bring in communism and the bigger one ...They know when TRUMP wins again they will all suffer until dead because ...If you think they won Fair ... your very stupid .. WHO gets 200k more votes than registered voters ...a cheater and thats not even the real evidence we have it all ... But Unless Cowards stand up America as we knew it is done forever ....There will be war on American soil if they blatantly cheat and cowards let them get away with it again .... stay armed , stay ready .. WE are everyplace ... There is only one way they win in 24 and its to cheat cus WE all HATE him , They will either stuff ballots or worse attempt to make all these illegals voters so they can say they won fairly which would still be cheating making citizens out of illegals is a crime ..be ready for it cus thats what they're gonna do...at least IMO .. That would be when we notify them of war if they try it ...Cant have that kinda crap in America ..
    And worse off its gonna take many yrs to fix this mess they've made ... so we give TRUMP 8 yrs being he had 4 stolen and we need a smart man in office to fix it .. NO LIBERAL in gov ever again .. we see they want to ruin us ... They are the swine GOD warned us about ... things of the devil

    In Nam our troupes had to burn the village to the ground and kill all the people in order to “save” the village.
    That’s the same agenda the democrats have in the works for America.

    I live comfortably in California. My family is here. I am in rural North Santa Barbara County. I was born here. I went to schools here. I built my custom home here. I was a biologist for the State of California with a great pension and the best Anthem Blue Cross PPO that was free to me. I was smart and saved, invested and have several rental properties in other states where I can buy 3 bed, 2 bath and 2 acres for $225K and rent for twice the mortgage payments for my beer and bullet money. Retired, I now have a successful taxidermy business. I see no reason to leave my every day, all year long 68 degree weather. Even Bobby Koflin had a great time at our 2023 Taxidermy Show!
