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
