Lacking a permit to mount waterfowl,  your only option is to donate or trash them.

You may already be on the hook for mounting your own migratory waterfowl without a permit.   I'm not aware of an exemption for diy mounts??

You can mount your own, just not for profit. And they cannot be sold. I would contact the LE and ask how to gift them.

no offense but you started the dispute here.you say you have some damaged some good all done by you that you have not been able to get rid of yet.

Are we missing something?now you are talking about legal to do yourself as long as you dont sell blah blah blah.

seems if you sold any so far you have already broke the law.

if you can't give them away because no one wants them and you dont want to move with them then...................throw them away.

Yup, I just wasn't sure if a guy could mount his own migratory birds without a permit, as I didn't see that in the rules.

Seems a none issue though now

Could you post pictures? There has to be a store, or other business that would like a free mount or two, and I personally would be interested to look at them. PM if you wish. Thanks

The law states that non edible portions of game animals and game birds may be sold or traded. With exceptions. In this case would he not be able to sell because he did a mount himself and does not have a taxidermist license? Or in general wouldn't be able to sell a bird mount. Because I see people selling mounts all the time.

Because its federal... i belive the Migratory bird act. If you read the book Operation Cody he busted a guy doing Taxi work and selling waterfowl.

It's a Federal Law.  Falls under the Lacey Act.  Can't barter, buy, sell or trade any wild migratory birds or bird parts.  Wild bird mounts have to be gifted or tossed essentially.

That makes sense. Wish the hunting regulations would state that. Funny how many duck mounts I've seen for sale online as well as antique shops and such. Assuming its ok for upland birds and turkey?

You can sell pheasant, turkey and other upland birds.  Just not migratory.  Sucks for taxidermists as well.  If they do a migratory bird mount and the customer skips out on them, they have no way to recover their material cost and time on them.  One of those laws that was put in place back in the 30’s to shut down market hunters.

 :yeah: Did he even say anything about selling them? I though it said “I can’t sell them because they are waterfowl”? Sounds like he is just trying to get rid of them the right way and not waste them

I wasn't trying to get my posts on the original posters thread off track. Sorry if its coming off that way. I am gonna try to add to the post not derail. Yes OP was just expressing wanting to give a new home.

So I have a question and see many sites stating the answer to this but what's your  opinion. Sites do state that you can sell legally harvested migratory bird feathers such as duck and geese for the purpose of fly tying. Any input?
