Hi everyone, hope trapping season is going well! I have posted here several times in the past looking to buy raw skulls. I am in need this year. I am looking for raw skulls without damage. Species I am most interested in are things like badger, fisher, porky, marten, weasel, "boomers," kit/swift fox, ringtail cats, gray fox, and stuff that would be less common that the raccoon, beaver and muskrats that I get myself:) If you catch something not listed let me know! I pay a per skull price and cover shipping. Most of these skulls will be given to several universities in New York as well as a local Audubon center. I have already supplied plenty of skulls from common species, and am trying to expand their collections. Thanks!

Up here with certain animals we have to turn the skull in. We can opt to get them back. but they have pulled a tooth and cut the root off. They send the tooth back with it so it can be glued back in. Does this matter to you? Or do you only want skulls that havent been tampered with at all?

Good question - it would ultimately depend on the species. I know species like fisher and marten typically have that with them. I could still use most species if one of the canines is missing

Dont know about other states. Here it is Otter, Fisher and Bobcat. They do send the tooth back with it. but you have to glue it back in.

If those states do the tooth study like Maine does on the black bears, they do not take a canine tooth. They take a tiny little tooth from the upper jaw in past the canine.
