Any reason a salvage permit couldn't be used?  We are allowed to salvage deer and elk, why not a ram?

Because those are the only animals covered under the salvage law...

It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

Sarcasm: The ability to insult stupid people without them realizing it. 

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.

You might contact Loki, IIRC he said he might be able to help in situations like this.

"The rule specifically applies to deer and elk killed by motor vehicles...."
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Love to hear what the fish and games advice was? JStone
"I don't hunt to live, I live to hunt."

"Elk don't know how many feet a horse has!"

My two favorite words? Take em!

It's very unlikely that they will let you have it, the bio doesn't have final say, Rich Harris the sheep, goat moose manager for the WDFW is the one that decides. They keep the heads of the sheep that are killed by disease of accidents and try to auction them to make money for research.

Should be finders keepers if you can legitimately prove that it was a naturally rotted carcass with no foul play. Otherwise it would have just ended up rat food anyway if you hadn't found it! Course the power brokers will exercise their power to the fullest, so don't hold your breath! Good luck

It's sad when the State has to auction stuff like this when we as hunters put so much money into the General fund so that we end up being cash crop for programs and orgs that wouldn't survive without it
