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 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.
