Need a clarification: If I have a hunting license issued by my state when I show it at the Canadian border I am allowed to carry in my rifle?

I don't think the hunting license matters. Non-assault type hunting rifles appear to be generally ok - see:
Firearm Users Visiting Canada - Royal Canadian Mounted Police
Classes of firearms - Royal Canadian Mounted Police

Sort of the opposite situation. You'd need a hunting license for the province you were entering. US hunters come to Canada in large numbers. The catch is that non-resident licenses are fairly expensive. Don't know what the most inexpensive one is.

I was happy to see Alaska's accommodating attitude. They clearly say, for non-residents, if the primary purpose of obtaining a hunting license is to be legally in possession of... then a non-resident small game license is the easiest way... It was only a few dollars. Nice of them to make it clear and easy for us aliens.

Didn't see the previous post before I posted. Glad to see that purchasing an expensive non-resident license isn't required. The $25 fee is about the same as the Alaska license so that seem fair.

Not that I'm knowledgeable about carry laws, but I would be surprised if any state permitted you to carry a gun in a bar and consume alcohol.

This is not meant as a criticism in any way - just an observation. I've learned a ton of things reading this forum. One of those things is that any thread that discusses firearms usually goes south fast. I try to avoid the subject, not because I don't have an opinion, but because the issue just seems too volatile. Focusing on what we all have in common - Escape trailers, road trips, camping, food, equipment, photos, and so forth, works for me.

I haven't been in a bar in over twenty years, so I wouldn't be in the presence of a lot of drunk people. The only time a firearm should be drawn is when your life is in imminent life threatening danger! The second to last thing I want is to harm anyone, but the last thing I want is any harm to come to my family. Unlike a lot of people these days human life is precious to me, any human life! But I will make that decision (although a very hard decision) to protect a loved one. The first thing from me would be peaceful words if time allows to diffuse the situation,after that all bets are off!

I haven't left yet, I'm off in a couple weeks. Two weeks alone in the woods sitting 20ft up a tree with no noise,people or cars. Nothing but the wind rustling through the leaves and me snoring safety tethered to my tree!

I 100% agree, This is a topic that will polarize a community like this really fast, and only bring about bad feelings. I too have my own opinions, but will keep them to myself.

Not to belittle what happened to Tom at all, it obviously it rattled him a lot.

We have had these discussions at FGRV a bunch too, with many of them getting closed down. One I was able to keep fairly civilized, but it took way too much of my interjecting for my liking.

A can of hornet spray is almost as good as a can of R.D. Mercers's whup ass.



We live in the boonies and my wife keeps a can by the front door for surprise visitors. Works on hornets as well.
