Snoqualmie or North Bend elk - property permission
« on: September 18, 2017, 09:39:32 AM »
Does anyone in Snoqualmie or North Bend has elk on their property? I am looking for permission to hunt, I can give 1/2 of elk if I get one.

Im not to sure this is legal.  Can you offer your animal or part of your animal for land access???  Just wondering.  Its close to selling wild game and I know that isn't legal unless it is raised on a game farm.

You can give elk meat away, and a person can also allow hunting on their property for free.

So I see no reason why you couldn't give meat to a landowner who let you hunt their land.

Yea but it needs to be a true gift. If the animal is traded for anything of value that's a problem even if it means its tossed out of court later.

For any charges to be made, the landowner would need to admit to illegally accepting meat as payment, and then prove that was the case.

I think that's highly unlikely.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

:yeah:

And good luck getting that prosecuted in King County.

If money is swapped then that's another case. I really don't see much difference in the OP's post and guys who go to eastern WA and give farmers smoked salmon (or whatever) as essentially a thank you for letting them hunt their land.  :twocents:
