Smile mammals and birds wanted for taxidermy

Hey yall
I'm an amateur taxidermist and am looking to source some animals.

If anyone partakes in the trapping/shooting of non-licence birds (pigeons, magpies, starlings, house sparrows, grackles, brown-headed cowbirds, blackbirds) or any small mammals (squirrels, ground squirrels, skunks, raccoons, or rabbits) and can throw a few in the freezer, let me know!
Heck, if you have a chicken or duck that dies unexpectedly and aren't comfortable eating it, message me!

Currently city-based so my options for sourcing are limited. Can pick up anywhere from Calgary to Edmonton.

I think that a fella ought to look into the legalities of selling wildlife, particularly fur bearers. Trafficking in wildlife wouldn’t look good on the resume. Just sayin.....

Just to be clear, I will not pay for anything. Just soliciting for things that would otherwise rot in a pile

check the Regulations Dave,I did

Sale of Wildlife

In Alberta anyone may sell the following: • processed (tanned or otherwise permanently preserved, but not dried, salted or frozen) skins of fur-bearing animals;

•black bear skins, provided they have been taken lawfully (black bear claws may only be sold if they remain attached to the whole skin);

•the skins of most animals, including skunk and raccoon, for which a licence is not required;

•unskinned beaver carcasses harvested outside the beaver trapping season; or

•all parts of lawfully taken furbearing animals, other than the unprocessed skin.

They must be tanned to sell to private person,but no license required

Must have buyer license to buy Raw fur

My advice, "I think that a fella ought to look into the legalities of selling wildlife, particularly fur bearers." wasn't directed specifically towards you PCP.

From the OP - "or any small mammals (squirrels, ground squirrels, skunks, raccoons, or rabbits)".

I wouldn't want anyone to unknowingly offer to sell any "small mammals" that they shouldn't (ie. a Squirrel).

Default Will pay money

Fully did not realize you could sell certain species without additional permitting.
But now that I do, I will pay money for certain animals if anyone has any. Where legal of course, as highlighted above.
