Just about everywhere, selling venison is going to get you in trouble.
Now that deer season is nearly over, we hunters can oftentimes find ourselves with our freezers full, or not full at all depending on the success of your season. If you were one of those lucky hunters with extra meat on hand, you will find yourself in big trouble with the law if you open up shop and start selling venison to clear a little space.
If you don’t believe me, this newscast serves as a strong PSA to really get the point across.
Just as you saw in the video, selling venison is often done out of ignorance of law. However, ignorance won’t save you. Just remember, if you see somebody selling venison on any of the popular social media sites, it is a crime. The same goes if they aren’t trying to sell it but asking to barter or trade instead.
The only real way to transfer venison to another person is by giving it them for free as a gift. Anything else other than that can land you a fine.
However, if you want to sell the hide or the antlers, you are good to go.
