I am a certified Alaskan hunter safety instructor.
I highly recommend you check the hunting regulations of the state these animals where shot in, and, the states that you are selling them from and shipping them to. Most all states prohibit the sale of any sport taken animal hide, skull and mount. The only exception is estate sales.
Each year the state of Alaska busts hunters – both in state and from out of state that have taken really nice trophy animals and then offered them for sale.
Hope this helps.

What Glacierw said is true. You should check the regs in your state and the state that you might have a buyer in. With issues of disease it is getting harder and harder to transport any part of an animal taken in another state. I know for a fact because about two years ago WV had its first CWD case show up. The WVDNR put strict rules out about taking deer in the county where the disease showed up. I won’t go into the details, you can read about it on the WV DNR website.
So make sure you check the legal aspects of selling these mounts.
