Anyone giving away a bear?

Hi,

I need bear meat, liver and gall bladder. But I'm not hunter.  If anyone shots one and doesn't need it let me know.

Thanks,

You're joking right?

Did you honestly join a hunting forum, say you aren't a hunter and ask for someone to give you their entire bear?  You do know that gall bladders are the main reason our PA bears get poached?  Doesn't sound too good when we hear someone asking for one.  Gotta thank the asian black market for that rediculous demand.

NH

I know in NH it is illegal to transfer bear gall bladders. Probably is in most states.

Huh? ...could this be an impersonator?  Sounds fishy to me as most, if not all, hunters know it's illegal to exchange bear parts.

I'm sorry but this is rediculous! Your name should be changed from Idiom to Idiot. I sure hope you're a USF&W agent cause if you're not... you're on the wrong forum. You aren't going to find poaching sleeze bags here.

Never thought of the DFG officer angle.  Would be tricky.  Stupid, but tricky.....

Ya... you never know though. If that's what it was I would have tried to not be so obvious. Who knows, maybe they've made cases off of tactics like this. Probably off of 24hourcampfire haha

Actually everyone here needs

Actually everyone here needs to check their local and state laws regarding giving away or donating and exporting bear parts.  In Colorado it is leagal also if you are exporting it you can do it as long as you fill out the proper forms.  Also that I know of it is also leagle in Utah.  Now those are the only two states that I have checked on but I am sure that there are more. 

 

You just need to follow the law to do it.
