As for tanned pelts, knock yourself out you can have pretty much whatever you want! Just some animals like bobcats, river otters, mountian lions, african lions, wolverine, ect. must be cities tagged and anything super rare for example a tiger or leopard must be cities tagged and can only be bought withen YOUR state no exeptions to this law.

But coyotes, wolves, foxes, raccoons, are 100% safe. As for skulls and mounts do not keep any deer antlers that are still attached to the skull or part of it, without getting it tagged first. But most mounts and bones your safe to get!

Im a pelt/taxidermy collecter and trapper so if you have any more questions feel free to ask! :)

Ah wow, thank you so much!! This was really helpful ahh <3 Especially the part about the deer antlers attached to a skull. That's really good to know because I was actually looking at some deer skulls with antlers on them |D Quick question though, if I were to buy deer antlers that weren't attached to a skull, would I have to get those tagged too?? And the same with the skull; if it's by itself, would I need to get it tagged??

Also, are birds and fish alright to buy too?? I really love birds and I think those mounts are really cool |D

Thanks again for all this!! It was incredibly helpful!! C:

I wouldn't be worried about actually owning said items, as I have found no evidence of a law against the possesion of mounts, bones or pelts. (I in fact actually have a couple animal bones in my room.) The real question lies in the methods of aquiring these items and what species of animal you plan on getting taxidermy stuff from. If you want to actually stuff the animals yourself, you need a license.

Yeah, I'm not planning on actually mounting the animals bc I don't have the time or talent or license that I need for that sorta thing but I just want pelts and bones and shit that I can display in my room. I've been looking at stuff from eBay lately (checking seller reviews and very carefully going over the product description as well, you can never be too careful) but I do know there's some other websites that sell specifically taxidermy stuff. So I might be buying from those places. And as far as specific animals go, I've been looking at mostly coyotes, raccoons, squirrels, other rodents or small mammals, and some kinds of birds too.
