With some of the recent changes in the classification of Black Bears, I was curious to know the legality of selling various Black Bear Parts. This is assuming that the bear was hunted legaly and for sport purposes, following all legal regulations and rules.
That said, what are the parts that I can sell to help fund my hunting trip. I am primarily a meat hunter when it comes to black bears. I have shot three so far, and really, how many claws and pelts do I need?
The following items come to mind of being of possible value:
What if I decide to gift these items to some of my asian friends instead of selling it to them? Assuming I am not expecting anything in return? Does the legality change?
- Bear hide
- Gall blader
- penis bone
If you do reply, please let me know where there might be any markets for these items and the possible prices I can expect?
