    Bringing Meat Home to the US

    OK, so I am going to be lazy and ask on here instead of doing a lot of research like I usually do.

    What are the regulations on bringing meat back into the US from Canada such as a moose?

    I'm starting to get that itch again to head somewhere and shoot me a new critter.

    Kind of hard to hide that much meat in a pair of trousers.

    I have a friend that is up in British Colombia right now chasing moose and I'm getting the itch.

    I would also plan on driving up so that I can bring it all home and not just a hundred pounds on the airline.

    My Dad and I went to BC Moose hunting in the 80's. When we re-entered the US, the customs person just checked our tags and firearms records (what we brought into Canada from US) and that was it. I'm sure it's way different today.

    I've been driving thru Canada a couple times, round trip for a few years. I've never have an issue with bringing game meat with me. They seem more concerned with produce.

    The funny thing was that when I came home from BC from my grizzly hunt in 2012 I almost flew through customs but had to do the paperwork for my black bear skin. The officer didn't even want to check anything he just asked me if it had all the meat off of the skull and he didn't bother with the skin. On my rifle he just asked me if it was the one on my 4457 and I said yes and that was as far as that went.

    Been to BC twice 2015 & 2018, both times my moose meat was cut and wrapped and frozen. Coming into the US, last year I had to fill paperwork out . It was more of a pain than a problem. You'll spend more time crossing into Canada than coming back into the US.

    That time I went up to BC and notified the Canadian customs that I had a firearm they did everything but tear my truck apart. They dumped out all of my clothes and equipment for the hunt and then just threw them back into the bags, I had to repack them before we loaded them onto the horses. I was stuck at that crossing for about 3 hours before they cut me loose for some stupid reason.

    And this was before Colorado legalized MJ>

    Big mistake, you should of gotten a Canadian firearms permit and had it filled out, except for signing it. You do that in the presences of the Mountie. If you're using an outfitter they'll provide it for you.
