What are the requirements for importing a rifle into Canada?
Despite Canada’s firearm restrictions, importing a gun is not very hard as long as hunters have completely filled out the necessary information on the Non Resident Firearm Declaration form. Forms will be sent to you when you book a hunt. For more information, follow this link to the Importing and exporting | Royal Canadian Mounted Police (rcmp-grc.gc.ca).
What kind of weather can I expect?
The old boy scout’s motto, “be prepared” certainly stands true in our territory. Mountain weather changes quickly. In one day a hunter can expect blazing sunshine or cold rain, possibly even wet snow depending on the elevation. Think layers that can be peeled off and a waterproof outer layer for wind and wet weather protection. Modern sports technology is really putting out some great outdoor wear. We suggest Sitka, Kuiu, or Prois gear and Kenetrek boots as some of our favourites.
How old does a hunter need to be?
Hunters need to be at least 10 years old if accompanied by an adult to be hunting.
Can I bring my handgun into Canada?
Handguns are only legal in Canada with a special permit and a non resident is never allowed to carry a handgun. Please leave them at home!
Where do you pick me up?
We will pick you up at an arranged location in Cranbrook, BC. Cranbrook has an international airport with flights from Calgary and Vancouver.
What is included in the hunt?
Prices are set in US dollars. Licences, tags and other permits are not included in the price and will be added to your invoice. Included with the price are pickup and transfer to main lodge, all meals, field prep of your animal, transport of meat and trophy to a butcher and taxidermist.
