Can mounted game trophies be sold to a buyer in another state?

My grandfather passed away and we received an offer from a guy in Washington to purchase his mountain lion rug. Is it legal to sell to him?

Answer

Lawfully harvested wildlife parts, except edible meat from game animals, may be purchased, bartered or sold when accompanied by a written statement showing the wildlife was lawfully harvested or possessed. Wildlife parts legally harvested outside of Idaho may be sold in Idaho if such sale is not prohibite in Idaho or the state, province, country where harvested.

Purchase and sell of wildlife from Idaho in another state is subject to that state's rules and laws.
