There will be a deer expo in Asheville NC in a couple weeks. I contacted the organization running the expo and asked what type of vendors would be there along with a question of would there be taxidermists there with mounts to sell. They answered back there would be taxidermists there, but that it is illegal to sell a deer mount in NC if the deer was originally a NC deer. Therefore, he would be displaying various mounts, but none could be sold. Is this normal?? I always assumed a mount was no different than any other piece of personal property such as an old lawnmower. If you obtained something legally in the first place, why couldn't you legally sell it??
They are going to auction off a caribou mount though for a fundraiser.
One day when the budget permits, I would like to buy a couple mounts of African game. I will never go there, so buying someone elses 30 year old mount will be my only option.
