Depending on your mode of travel, we can help you arrange getting any meat cut, packaged and sent to you for a nominal charge. Also if you are not interested in the meat, we have many requests from folks unable to hunt looking for meat for their personal consumption.

What fishing flies are allowed?

Newfoundland & Labrador allow only single barbless hooks for fly fishing on our rivers. When releasing salmon this makes things so much better for the fish. At our Serpentine River Lodge, we have a selection of locally tied flies available for purchase.

I had a D.U.I years ago. Will this affect me crossing the Canadian Border?

Some hunters now coming to Canada have been told at the Canadian Border that they are not eligible to enter. For Criminal Offenses such as: Theft, Assault, DUI, Fraud, False Pretences, Narcotics, Robbery, Mischief, Possession of Stolen Goods, Obstruction of Justice, Possession of Weapons, Breach of Probation, it states that you are ineligible to travel to Canada if you have been convicted of any of these offenses. No matter the length of time that has passed, all convictions will render you inadmissible to Canada. Youth convictions will not be considered. Entry to Canada at any port (land, air or water) may be denied unless the traveller holds a valid permit. The permit may be valid up to 2 years and allows visitors entrance into Canada for vacation or business purposes only.

You must fill out a firearms declaration form which is available on line at: www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/form-formulaire/pdfs/909.pdf Please fill out the Declaration form in advance but do not sign it until you are at the border in the presence of border personal so they can witness you signing.
