Taking Crossbow into Canada?

Because of my accident in the fall I moved my bear hunt from the outfitters fall Maine camp to his spring New Brunswick camp. I tried to look up the paperwork that may be required for taking a crossbow over the boarder and back but it didn't seem to address bows, just firearms.

Anybody know if you need to do the CAFC 909 & US 4457 forms for crossbows?

I have not hunted new brunswick in several years ,but on my last trip crossbows were not a legal weapon to hunt with. laws may have changed since then , as far as archery equipment they didnt even question it.

Save a wolf , take one to the taxidermist

Leave it home??? It would be difficult to insert the arrows into the bear manually!

I carried two crossbows into New Brunswick last spring. I didn't have either one in a case and had no problem at the border. However, there is a law that once you begin your hunt, you have to have the crossbow in a case when driving to and from your hunt. No specifics on the case. It can be a soft or hard case.

Thanks TBrom.

What you said jives with what I found on-line yesterday. Guess I'll have to pick up a case for the bow so I'm good on the hunt.
