If it's skull and horns are in good shape, you should call WDFW and see if they can salvage it.  They may give it to a school or use for hunters education.  Just a thought.

Call it in. They will want to try and figure out why it died. Lead poisoning, disease etc.

NO!

Yep, federal offense if caught with one not plugged by a department of fish and game from which state or province it came from in North America.

As mentioned above please let fish and game know, there are a bunch of different things going on with the sheep herds, some are in trouble and every loss is important.

On occasion they will let you keep it.   Roll the dice if you want to be legit. If itís a trophy, the odds arenít in your favor.    If you decide to keep it illegally, I guess you roll the dice the other way whether or not youíll get busted.
