    As a resident of the good ol' USA, I've hunted in Canada many times. I normally hunt with a bolt rifle or lever rifle. I'm interested in using a 16"bbl AR-15, 458 SOCOM, for an upcoming black bear hunt. With laws changing everyday; does anyone know if a non-resident can declare an AR-15 and hunt with it in New Brunswick?

    AR’s are classed as restricted and can only be shot at a certified range, and there are transportation rules that must be followed
