new foundland moose hunt

looking to go to NF on a moose hunt next year. for those of you that travel out of the US, what is it going to take to transport my flintlock rifle and powder there to hunt? any help would be appreciated.

should have added the fact that both are custom or home built guns and have no serial numbers. I would assume a SN is required on the paper work?

Same as a regular rifle, get a CBP 4457, stop at the border and declare it, fill out the Canadian firearm registration and pay the fee. Need a passport and no DUI's.

DUI's with anyone in your party you'll be driving someone home or looking for a bus station.

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.

Re: new foundland moose hunt

This would be up to you to argue on the Canadian side, I tried and lost although I still feel I was right and they were not aware of their own regs. I felt because it was a flintlock no registration at all was needed. They disagreed, no big deal, I filled out the paperwork and paid the $25.

Yes a SN would be needed for the US 4457 and Canadian registration if they forced you the same as me. The US 4457 is a general purpose form not specifically for firearms but has always been used for them. The purpose is to have any expensive items registered by SN before leaving so they cannot accuse you of buying them outside of the country and then have to pay duty on the item.

But here is the Canadian site:
http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/publicati...-eng.html#P003

From that site:
Quote:
On the other hand, antique firearms are not considered firearms for licensing and registration purposes. Antique firearms include:
• any firearms manufactured before 1898 that are not originally designed or redesigned to discharge rim-fire or centre-fire ammunition;
• long guns manufactured in 1898 or later that are reproductions of flintlock, wheel-lock, or matchlock firearms; and
• firearms that are classified as antique by regulations.

Re: new foundland moose hunt

A few years ago, I took my Brad Emig Yorktown flintlock across the border to hunt whitetails on Anticosti Island. We crossed the border off I-87 in NE New York.

I did not have to pay a fee since my rifle was a reproduction of pre-1800 weapon. I had removed the lock at home before leaving, and was simply asked to re-attach the lock for the inspectors. I'm not sure they'd ever seen a full-size flintlock. I was required to fill out some paper work, if I remember correctly.

On another occasion, I took another pre-1800 reproduction flintlock across the border to participate in a battle re-enactment on the Plains of Abraham in Quebec. Again, no fee was paid.

Good luck on your moose hunt.
