    I would like to give my dogs some antlers to chew on. Does anyone have any pieces of antler, any size, that they have no use for? I would be willing to pay for the antler and the shipping. Or I could trade some empty brass if you are a reloader.

    It is illegal in many states to sell any part of an animal without proper licensing.

    Just because it is sold on eBay doesn't make it legal. According to your logic because Craigslist had hookers then prostitution is legal. Look up laws not the biggest seller fraud sites in the world. Einstein.

    (A)ny wild animal,whether alive or dead, including without limitation any wild mammal, bird, reptile, amphibian, fish, mollusk, crustacean, arthropod, coelenterate, or other invertebrate, whether or not bred, hatched, or born in captivity, and includes any part, product, egg or offspring thereof. [FN185]

    That is directly from federal law.

    Again go back to my original response.

    It is also illegal in many states to possess parts of animals that you didn't kill yourself with a valid license. In fact in some states you can be prosecuted for picking up roadkill.

    The last thng you want to give your dog to chew is an antler. The antlers chip when chewed. This causes terrible digestive problems in a dog. Small dogs can choke. My setter 80 lbs. gets more gas than you can stand. I live in area covered with antler sheds. My problem is keeping them away from the dogs.:(

    Well I guess that makes Buck Knives, Case Knives, Eagle Handgun Grips and who knows how many other makers of knives and grips in violation of federal law. Thought you were a mountain man go to Dixie Gun Works bet they have something made with antlers

    Are you illiterate or just a jackass?

    State laws vary and they have licenses.

    And yes I am a mountain man and it is illegal for me to sell any of the antlers or claws or raw or treated hides from my hunting.

    I guess I will have to tell all the guys around here they are in violation of Federal Law by selling their hides to the furbuyer who comes around, as a matter of fact hunters and trappers have been in violation of the law for years, I wonder how they avoid prosecution. I have a rack from a 10 pt whitetail buck on the wall that my grandpa shot in the 60's, hope the feds don't come try to take that:eek:.

    Importing In order to legally transport into Vermont and possess big game that was legally taken in another state or country, a person must keep the tag that is required by the state or the country where the big game was taken. Each package of meat must be marked with the name of the person who took the animal, tag number, date, and state or country of origin.

    Rules on Importing and Possession of Deer or Elk from Areas with Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) and Captive Hunt Areas or Farms: It is illegal to import or possess legally taken deer or elk, or parts of deer or elk, from states and Canadian provinces that have, or have had Chronic Wasting Disease, or from any captive hunt or farm facilities, regardless of its disease history, with the following exceptions:

    Meat that is boneless. Hides or capes with no part of the head attached. Clean skull-cap with antlers attached. Antlers with no other meat or tissue attached. Finished taxidermy heads. Upper canine teeth with no tissue attached.

    That's just Vermont. I'm making an educated guess that's your home state. Now go to eBay and just buy some antlers and see if they come properly packaged. It's your Ass. And as I've repeatedly stated as if I'm speaking to a slow six year old STATE LAWS VARY!

    Here is another state

    (h) sale of a deer or the meat thereof. A person may sell the head and hide of a deer which has been lawfully taken to a licensed fur dealer or taxidermist, and may sell the hoofs and shinbones to any person;

    You a licensed fur dealer or taxidermist hotrodz?

    Point proven. I'm done arguing with someone that has the intelligence level of broccoli.

    It is illegal to sell any part of a game animal a hunter harvests, not illegal to sell parts of farm raised animals.

    They do raise Red stag and other game animals here in the U.S. and abroad.

    When it comes to hides, different rules do apply.

    Each year at the Federal Feed Grounds near Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Tons of antlers from Moose, Elk, Deer Etc are sold at auction. These sheds are from winter feed grounds where thousands of animals winter during the annual migration. Buyers come from all over the world to buy these antlers. These items end up on knives and every thing else. The folks from Japan and China buy Bull Elk antlers and grind them up. They make an ancient form of "Viagra" from it. Is that where "Horney" comes from?:rolleyes:
