NH

I checked the regs in NH.

It is illegal to sell, or offer to sell any part of a deer, bear or moose other than the head, hide or feet.

Makes sense to me.

But you can donate it.  The original poster never said that he wanted to buy the parts he just wants them.

I'm not defending anyone here

I'm not defending anyone here but just letting people know that it isn't illeagle to give away or donate parts of game animals, and in some cases depending on what part you can sell them.  This isn't a one shoe fits all but people do need to know what the laws are in their state are. 

I can't tell you the number of animals and antlers that I have gave away to either reliitives or local people that I know that enjoy the taste of game meat along with useing the antlers to decorate something.  So far this year I have orders to donate at least one elk.  The orders came from my sister who knows of a family that needs the meat.  So I will do all I can to find a spike bull in Utah just for that purpose.  That and along if I find the buck of my dreams over there on the muzzleloader hunt next week his meat will be donated also.

rules

Critter, as you said...you gotta know the rules. I some states there are limits to how much you can donate or give away. Some states require a permit to transfer game meat. It's best to know the regs.

I think we pretty much know

I think we pretty much know that its legal to donate parts of animals. Specifics vary from state to state but I'm pretty sure most of us already knew that. This guy isn't just asking for deer meat or an antler or two. He is requesting parts of bear... which coincidentally (or NOT) have a very high black market value. This black market drives poaching for bear species around the world. Bear gall bladder sales are just about as bad as it gets. Right up there with killing tigers for their penises and finning sharks. If you have ever seen the pictures of bears in dog kennels being fed a constant supply of sedatives you would know what I mean. These bears have tubes inserted into their gall bladders and are being milked for their bile just because some misguided people believe that it will fix their woes in bed if they ingest it. MAKES ME SICK TO MY STOMACH

I never heard about tigers

I never heard about tigers being killed for their private parts. That's a new one to me. Confused

Tiger penis is used to

Tiger penis is used to supposedly treat impotence and to increase virility. I would love to get my hands on the dumb@$$'s who think that this is true and that take part in this tradition. The sale of these parts fuels poaching of these species. There are many forms and motives for poaching but traditional eastern medicine is one of the worst. It makes my blood boil angry

Wow fully processed

Wow fully processed even.

 

In Maine we can sell hide head, fur and organs. Cannot sell meat but can give it away. A buddy of mine once traded a gall bladder to a chinese fella and got free chinese food for about six months.
