good luck,I'll be out that week to hunt bears north of llyod.

Actually I am going with a local taxidermist that has mounted my deer in the past. He is going to meet me after we land and get the hide prepared. I figured that I am going to save at least $500-$700 in shipping fees alone. The price of the actual bear mount does not bother me as long as I am getting quality. I would rather pay more and wait longer than the try to go the cheap route if you know what I mean. This was I can stop by the shop and check progess on the mount from time to time.

Here is my Taxidermist website:

Hi Buckfever4life
-I am also scheduled for a bear hunt May 11th 2008 at Larson lake outfitters- hope your travels go well. I have been told that you can not ship a firearm into Canada that you intend to use for a hunt (non-commercial) you must declare it at customs with the required paper work plus pay their fee. Lic is good for 60 days. I have elected to use a bow just to ease the travel problems with firearms into canada. Looking forward to meeting you - polarbear from PA

We have our Declaration form (unsigned) and ready to go with our rifles. I guess the fee was $50 and now its like $26 or something. Where are you flying out of? We are flying out of Columbus, OH Sunday 11th at 4PM and we will arrive in Toronto at 5:30 PM, then we leave Toronto at 8:00 PM and arrive at Saskatoon at 9:30 PM. Its like a 1 1/2 hour drive to camp from the airport, so we will be arriving late in the evening a little before midnight. We are fying out on Friday the 16th, so we only have 4 days to hunt. There are 4 of us on a group and I wonder how many hunters are in camp at a time?
