    Default Any Problems bringing bows through canada?

    I don't think there are but I wanted to check with the collective to find out...

    P.S. I got my new bow well worth the 20 bucks

    Default I had no problems when I crossed the border

    When I moved up here last summer I had no problems crossing either border. I even told them that I had my archery equipment in the back of my Explorer, I just recommend keeping broadheads not very accessible or on your arrows.

    Default Nope

    Canadian customs did not have any problem September 06 with my bow and associated equipment. I crossed from North Dakota.

    Default Canada

    I have crossed many times with a bow and I even declared it the first time when they asked if I had any firearms the lady laughed when I said only if a bow and arrows count and she sent me along my merry way.

    I have not crossed over Canada with my bow but I have hunted in Saskatchewan with my bow a few times. I had no problem in Canada at all. Every tip I was told good luck and hope you get a big bear. Very nice people to deal with. And the custom people pointed me to the exit. I had a harder time getting on a plane in the states with my bow.
