To bring, or not to bring...across the border to Canada

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure smelt has been banned in all forms in Ontario for quite some time, I'm sure Hemlock will comment as well. The concept is that they don't want them spread to their waters I believe....

There are certain parts of Canada that don't allow you to use frozen smelt as bait. I think frozen smelt are allowed in the the Thunder Bay area and west a ways. Anyway this is the way it is written in their game laws. What part of Canada were you in?

Not sure if anyone has asked this yet? Getting to be a very long thread...

Can a guy bring along a few venison steaks to enjoy on the grill?

Dennis, I called with that question to the Fort Francis border crossing and they said: "No, they are not allowing it in." I said, "Who's not allowing it in?" They said, "The department of Agriculture." OK, I guess that's that. Sorry dude. I've got some tenderloins left from last year if you want some. (Acutually, that's some MN deer in my freezer, oops) blush.gif

Usually we get in line by or before 7:00am, and it's usually not too bad if I remember. Just a few vehicles is all. One year I think we hit it at around 9:00 or 10:00am and it was close to a 45min. wait.

Hey Pikestrike was the traffic patteren any different this week than last? How about the wait times on the sad southbound return trip? That direction has been a lot longer wait the past several years.

This weekend the wait was a bit longer in Intl Falls according to the HSOforum. Into Canada it was already over an hour at 8 AM and cooled off to 30 min at 2 PM. Going the other way, the peak (of 2 hours) was at 1 PM though it was still 90 mins at 2PM.
