I have a question re: carrying my 18.5 inch barrel Mossberg pump with slugs while hiking/fishing/enjoying the parks and woods of Alaska this summer. If a game warden happens upon me, will he accuse me of hunting without a license? I was also wondering if anyone has ever actually crossed the Canadian border with a shotgun? I have the paperwork all filled out. I notice the price has gone from $25Can. to $50Can. I gave up long ago on trying to get my (inadequate I admit) .44 mag. Ruger up here. I am just plain afraid of bears. Just hoping that having the gun along will give me a little peace of mind. Yes, I have a huge collection of bells. Been there before with them.
