                5.  Include your location - (US state or country where the mount is located)  This is important - many older mounts (pre-1973) cannot be sold across state lines since they do not have the current tags and paperwork required.  .  
               
6. DO NOT SEND ME PICTURES - I do not buy mount to resell and I do not give appraisals.

SCAM ALERT 2016
One of the users on this site was nice enough to forward an example of an offer he received to buy his mount.  It has all the earmarks of a scam and when he said he would only accept cash - he never heard from him again.   Below is a copy of his original e-mail so you can be aware of this type of solicitation:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Potential buyer wrote -

I am interested in  buying your item i will like to know the final asking price with the present condition hope to read soon.

Seller replied with the details on the condition, location, price, etc.

Potential buyer then replies - 

Thank you for your response,i will like to let you  know that the price of the item  is ok with me $1000 Concerning the shipping  of the item,i have a Shipping agent that would be responsible for the pick up of it at your location.

I will be paying by a check and i will wait for the certified check  to clear your bank before the pick up arrangement is made,I would instruct my client to issue out a certified check to you and the certified check would cover both the price of the item and the shipping charges,so the amount on bank draft will  be $4000

I would want you to pay in the check into your Bank account and when it clears, you would deduct the cost of the Item and  then send the rest of the money to my Shipping Agent via the nearest Western Union outlet in your Area.

Ps:I want you to remove the advert from the Internet and consider it sold to me,on which i would be glad to compensate you with an extra  $50 for doing this.

Email back with your following details..

Name on certified check:


Full Contact Address:


Phone number..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 See the flags?

NOTE - NEVER give your full name, address & phone # to someone you don't know 
Never accept over payment and then send the "extra" or "refund" back to the buyer.

Use the same caution regarding  a buyer come to your house - some are "casing" your place for guns and other valuables or have other bad intent.  Best to meet someplace public, even if it's inconvenient. 

If it's a large or awkward to move piece - you can bring pix of the mount, including close-ups,  to show a potential client.  A legitimate buyer will understand and be cooperative.

Be careful out there!  The internet is gathering place for the refuse of humanity.

COUGAR SPORTSMAN TROPHY - MINT CONDITION - $2195 
This is a splendid Cougar Trophy in mint condition mounted on a light weight and durable artificial rock. He is poised in a hunting position and ready to spring on prey. He was shot in the Colorado Mountains. This is an exceptionally large cougar trophy. Size: Length: 60"; Height (Including artificial rock): 27.5". Depth: 18". Weighs approximately 45 - 50 lbs.  Easy mount over your fireplace or wall, either in your home or business.    

You will not find a Cougar Trophy of this quality anywhere in the United States or Canada. Many taxidermy companies offer Cougar Trophies of lesser quality for a much higher sales price than this ad is offering. Thus you can appreciate the value and quality of this trophy compared to others that are available. We are changing the decor in our bonus media room and we don't have the room for this exceptional trophy anymore...our loss is your gain!

This is a onetime opportunity for a collector or sportsman that appreciates a trophy of this quality and caliber. Please call ERIC  at 714-227-7288 (I am a resident of South Carolina) to discuss your interest in this special Cougar Trophy in mint condition.

INFORMATION ON BUYING or SELLING OLDER MOUNTS
If you are buying or selling an older mount that is now protected under the CITES act, or if you are not sure if you can legally buy or sell any mount -  CLICK ON THE LINKS BELOW  to the US Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) and links to your state agency responsible for fish & wildlife regulations.  For Canadian and other non-USA citizens, contact your appropriate federal agency to be sure you are in compliance with your laws regarding importation or export of wildlife.  


Legal information - buying & selling taxidermy
In response to several questions on selling older mounts that are now protected under the 1973
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 raised.(ex toe clipped). Unfortunately, you cannot sell "pre-act" migratory birds.  

Our laws pertaining to the MBTA can be found on our website at:  http://www.fws.gov.   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:  www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/cfr-table-search.html.  

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 http://www.gpoaccess.gov.

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 enquire about any State prohibitions.  Contact information for State wildlife management agencies can be found on our website at: http://offices.fws.gov/statelinks.html  You could also donate any wildlife mounts to any person or entity (school, museum, etc).  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.

If you have other questions or need specific answers, I suggest you contact a USFWS agent directly.  You can find your local USFWS office here -
