Ninety-five-98% of our archery hunters come from the U.S. One of the first questions I’m asked from hunters in the States is, “How difficult is getting firearms into Canada?” It’s really not much different hunting in Canada than it is hunting in the Lower 48 States. All you have to do is fill out a 1-page form and pay $25 to get your firearm into Canada. It’s much easier to get a gun into Canada if you’re coming from the U.S., then it is to get a gun into the U.S. if you’re coming from Canada. You can download the form online, or when you fly or drive into Canada, the forms are available for you to fill out at the airport or the border. You are prohibited from bringing in handguns, automatic weapons and some semi-automatic weapons. However, almost all hunting rifles qualify to be brought into Canada.
