Legal information - buying & selling taxidermy

In response to several questions on selling older mounts that are now protected under the 1975
Convention on Importation of Threatened and Endangered Species (CITES), I contacted the US Fish & Wildlife Service.  They gave me the following response -

Thank you for your message asking for information on our laws and regulations pertaining to the sale of wildlife mounts.  Our mission is, working with others, to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.  

You are correct that numerous species of birds in the United States are listed as protected in the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) and other wildlife mounts may be protected by other Federal laws.  

You can find the prohibitions in Section 16 USC §703, of the MBTA and if you go to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 50, Part 10.13 you will find a list of the Migratory birds protected under the Act.  It is a violation of the MBTA to sell any mounted migratory bird, except in the case of migratory waterfowl that have been captive reared (bird farms) and the waterfowl has been identified as being captive  traised. (exoe clipped). Unfortunately, you cannot sell "pre-act" migratory birds.  

Our laws pertaining to the MBTA can be found on our website at:   You can also print out a copy of the MBTA from our website.  Title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 10, includes a list of all the federally protected birds in North America.  This list can be found at the following website:  

With respect to wildlife mounts made from "pre-act" endangered species, they are not illegal to possess, however, unfortunately, you cannot sell them.  The Federal statute dealing with the prohibitions of the Endangered Species Act can be found in 16 USC 1538.  The Federal regulations dealing with the prohibitions will provide you with a list of animals and fish that are endangered and this list can be found in 50 CFR 17.  Both the statute and the regulations can be found at

It would be illegal to sell the endangered wildlife mount across State lines.  You could legally sell the wildlife mount within your State as long as there are no prohibitions of State law.  You should contact your local Department of Natural Resources to  inquire about any State prohibitions.  Contact information for State wildlife management agencies can be found on our website at:  You could also donate any wildlife mounts to any person or entity (school, museum, etetc.  If you donate the wildlife mount you are not legally allowed to take a tax deduction because this would be treated as an interstate sale if the donation occurred across State lines.  There can be no monetary compensation for the donation of an endangered species product.

The complete list of mounts covered by the US Endangered Species Act can be found here -

What Does Molon Labe  Mean?
(pronounced ~ mo LONE LAH veh)

For those of us that are strong believers in the 2nd Amendment and our right to defend our homes, property and families - no words can sum it up better than the laconic phrase of King Leonidas I of Sparta to Xerxes I of Persia when demanded to lay down their arms and surrender, at the onset of the Battle of Thermopylae (480 BC).  "Molon Labe" (Come and Take) was the defiant response of the King of Sparta.  He would not surrender nor lay down his weapons.

Instead, the Spartans held Thermopylae for three days and, although they were ultimately annihilated, they inflicted serious damage upon the Persian army, and most importantly delayed its progress to Athens, providing sufficient time for the city's evacuation to the island of Salamis. Though a clear defeat, Thermopylae served as a moral victory and inspired the troops at the Battle of Salamis and the Battle of Plataea.

Molon labe has been repeated by many later generals and politicians in order to express an army's or nation's determination not to surrender. The motto ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ is on the emblem of the Greek First Army Corps, and is also the motto of United States Special Operations Command Central (SOCCENT).    The expression "Come and take it" was a slogan in the Texas Revolution.

In America, both the original Greek phrase and its English translation are often heard from pro-Second Amendment activists as a defense of the right to keep and bear arms. It began to appear on web sites in the late 1990s and early 2000s.   In the Second Amendment or firearms freedom context, the phrase expresses the notion that the person uttering the phrase is a strong believer in these ideals and will not surrender their firearms to anyone, including governmental authority.

Since 480 B.C this spirit of defiance in the face of  tyranny and overwhelming odds has been expressed in different words by different men, but the same truth comes through.

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government”   Thomas Jefferson

"Anyone who trades liberty for security deserves neither liberty nor security”   Benjamin Franklin

"It's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees."  Emiliano Zapata

The Armor of God
Ephesians 6:10
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
