Brought a coyote and a bobcat to the fur buyer, was gonna view his shop and get some pointers, he ended up only buying the coyote pelt($20 in the green) was gonna do $100 for the bobcat(carcass) and give more depending on the auction but I failed to realize I needed to get it sealed from the game department in order to sell! The cat was a roadkill some guy asked me to remove which I happily did. Fur buyer was a 3 hour drive. Oh well. Super nice guy, very knowledgeable and Iím gonna be happy to do more business with him. Especially once the cat gets sealed. Note to everyone- if your commie state requires a seal donít space it just because itís a roadkill.

I think every state requires a seal that exports bobcats. I may be wrong though.

Cities tags are federal but issued buy the state. All states require them for sale and export across state line. Only exception is California where sale and export of bobcats is unlawful.

Yup. And for some dumb reason I totally spaced it. Buyer was super nice and even called up a warden buddy. Just sucks with how far I have to drive to get it sealed.

Bummer, but yes CITES is what is required. Our game wardens have certain days and times they come by areas to tag cats. Might give him/her a call and see what yours do.

Called the warden and I guess Iím out a kitty too. Washington only allows the use of hunted/trapped animals. So they canít give me a seal and Iím supposed to dispose of the cat. Also if I get caught with an unsealed cat he had a list of consequences. Note- Washington sucks. Iím moving.

so you told the warden it was road kill and he told you they wont give you a seal unless you trapped or shot it?

I told him it died but wasnít hunted or trapped by me. I know if itís hit on a highway which by Washington law is any road then itís state property and illegal to pick up. This was a private road which I thought was a gray area. And I was told it has to be disposed of then- not hunted or trapped. Not even supposed to do an at home tanning or anything.

Got a road kill fisher couple years ago, got the county sheriff who got me in touch with the local DNR warden he gave me a tag but it cost me $25. Took it for mounting as it really wasn't damaged.
