Sounds good, I will carry my luggage along with my rifle through the airport. I appreciate everyones advice. I dont have a suitcase, but would a large cargo type bag be acceptable to carry my clothing and personal items in?
I am now trying to decide if I should have a local taxidermist in canada (possibly Orion taxidermy) mount the bear and have it sent to me, or take it back and let a local taxidermist do the mount here in the states. The outfitter said he has several very reputable taxidermists that specialize in bear mounts in canada. Any feedback?
