Typically September is beautiful weather for hunting with cool mornings and warm afternoons but rain and the occasional blast of snow can happen. October can be similar but the frequency of colder weather increases as the month proceeds.
What to Bring
Layered clothing in brown camo patterns, head gear both warm and cold weather, gloves, lightweight waders or at least knee boots, head lamp, sun glasses, cameras, sun screen, bug spray and passport.
The provincial licenses are required for US and other International hunters to hunt waterfowl and/or upland birds and are available online at www.albertarelm.com/ . Document all of your login ID and passwords and bring them with you to camp in case there are any licensing complications before your hunt.
There is a Migratory Game Bird License that is also required by the federal government (bird stamp) that will be provided at camp for $17.50 CDN. This license is good for any area in Canada.
Traveling with Guns, Gun Rentals and Ammunition
We have guns available should you decide you don’t want to travel with your guns. We have 3inch 12 gauge Franchi Affinity Semi-autos for our 3 day package.
If you prefer to bring your own guns, bringing guns into Canada is relatively easy and the permit only costs $25.00 CDN for up to 3 guns. We will provide information on forms and procedures once you have booked your hunt. However, bringing your guns back into the US can be tricky. It is wise to get a Document of Origin from US Customs for your gun. Canadian citizens need not concern themselves with this.
You are allowed to bring roughly 200 rounds or 11lbs of shells with you in your checked luggage but it is best to check with your airline before you arrive at the airport. We have 3 inch 12 gauge ammunition on hand at regular retail prices if you don’t want to travel with shells. We can also get you any special ammo you might require (like sub gauges and specialty loads) if you give us enough time prior to your arrival in camp.
