I would contact the people selling.  I would assume that they have to buy from somewhere.  you can also try exotic wood suppliers to see if they would be interested.
Always try it twice, the first time could've been a fluke.

If you mean pallets, contact local pallet manufacturers. Put an ad on Craigslist and sell it as blocking. Also see if there is a registry for secondary processors kept by your forest service. You may find someone there for flooring needs.

Call PFPA, they have a pretty large membership and cover the whole state. They have a website too, you may be able to find something there. Otherwise hit the pavement and do some driving. Head to the nearest Amish community, seems every one of them has a pallet shop employing a few guys and they may be interested in buying cants. Shouldn't have a problem moving them right now, everyone I talk to says demand is pretty good.
It ain't easy...
