OAR 635-200-0000
Purpose and Applicability


ORS 498.022 (Purchase, sale, exchange or possession of wildlife or wildlife parts or products) states that except as provided by rule adopted by the commission, no person may purchase, sell, or exchange, or offer to purchase, sell, or exchange any wildlife parts. The purpose of these rules is to provide in one division all rules allowing the sale, purchase, or exchange of wildlife parts.


Each exception to the statutory prohibition applies only to the parts of lawfully taken animals. Unless otherwise specifically allowed by law, the sale, purchase, or exchange of the parts of any wildlife that was taken unlawfully continues to be prohibited. In the case of any enforcement action for violation of these rules, the burden of proving that the animal was taken lawfully is on the person who sells, purchases, or exchanges wildlife parts.
