    Hi all. I'm going to Ontario in hopes of shooting a Wolf. I know I need Small Game license and a Wolf/Coyote seal. What else do I need to get the hide back into the U.S.?

    I wish you would just go to Idaho, Montana or Wyoming and shoot one instead.

    Especially MT:D. I'd check with the Fish and Game Dept of the state you'll be coming back across the boarder into.

    If you're talking the Kapukasing River area, you might try www.kapriveroutfitters.ca site for contact/help. Mighty cold up there this time of year.

    It all depends as to where you are hunting. In some zones, all you need is a small game license, in others you will need a wolf tag. Once you shoot your wolf, you will need to pick up a permit at the nearest Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR), its a royalty the province collects, the cost is ridiculous, and will cost you about $1.50, yes a buck and a half.! This will allow you to take the pelt to a tannery, taxidermist or out of country. Without it you could face a heavy fine.

    Best of luck, February was great wolf hunting in Ontario!

    A good paper trail as has been said, from beginning to the end of the trip. Its been a few years, but a friend brought 3 back from BC, and a CITES permit from the Province was required. He said it seems like $20-25. If memory serves not every border crossing is set up to process the hides, and you may have to use a select station, and cross at certain times. A call to USFWS might be in order. Or a taxidermist knowledgeable about import and export. Then you'll want to keep that info with the hide. Its been a few years, process may have changed, or I remember it wrong. Good Luck.
