isnt it illegal to sell game meat??
« on: December 29, 2011, 03:01:02 PM »
Saw this add and thought he was trying to get rid of it for free or something. Gave him a call and he wants 3-4 $ a pound. I thought it was illegal to sell it if you are not a licensed dealer of game meat???  :dunno:

I saw nothing there that said it was for sale......just sayin. That could be how he is trying to skirt around legalities. I do not know if it is legal or not......I eat all of mine.  :chuckle:

I believe this has been addressed previously and that this individual is from a native American Yakama tribe.  It is illegal for non tribal members.

Might this be the guy the other poaching thread is about over there? The guy with the butcher shop?

If he is a tribal member then it's o.k for them to sell it. If not then it is not legal to sell wildlife meat.

Is it OK to buy it if you're not tribal?

to legally possess game meat you have to have documentation from the hunter including tag info is my understanding but that is just what my hunter ed instructor told us never saw that in regs.  maybe its an RCW or WAC but I couldn't say. 
Such is life in the West and the further West the more the such.

Its illegal unless you are native american. 

Farm elk can be sold but doubt thats the case here.
