Getting an owl done

I was helping my aunt move today and an extended family member was there. Throughout the discussion he asked if I knew anyone who would do a mount on an owl. He came across an owl that appears to have died of natural causes. The Game Commission simply told him to throw it away (they didn't even want to come see it) but he wants to get it mounted.

I seen online that you can buy them already mounted so I'm guessing it's legal as long as you didn't kill it yourself. Anyone know anyone who does this sort of thing?

No one in their right mind would do a mount of it. They cant be kept .

Re: Getting an owl done

Certain places such as a school can get a permit for these types of birds, but an individual will never get a permit. There may be ways a Native American can, but I don't know them and from what I've read it would still be very hard to get a permit. Owls, and other birds of prey, are regulated by the federal government (USFW). I'm surprised the PAGC JUST told you to throw it out. Just picking it up was illegal, and had your relative called USFW, they might have come out to do more than just look at it. Just because they are sold online doesn't make it legal. Most if not all are just the opposite, but there are some non-native birds of prey that are legal.

Re: Getting an owl done

I hear you guys. It's a distant cousin of my fathers that I've met maybe 10 times in my life. He found it strange they didn't want to come look at it either (especially because he thinks its a great horned owl). He called them to come pick it up but when they told him to throw it in the trash he decided if it didn't matter to them that much then he'd get it mounted to display.
