Taking a bow to Canada

Anyone taken a bow into Canada recently?  I'm not really expecting any issues with the airline (Air NZ) or when I enter Canada but it would be good to hear about any first hand experiences.

One thing of interest was American Airlines, who I flew with last year, classify a bow as sporting good and Air New Zealand classify a bow as a weapon and prohibited item  Roll Eyes

cb14... I went bear hunting in Nova Scotia a few years back.  One of my mates took a long bow into Canada and we used rifles..we had to jump a few hoops with the rifles, but they didn't even look at his bow.  No paperwork either, at least at that time.

I had no problem taking the bow into Canada, in fact they laughed at me when I said I had a weapon haha.

Managed to shoot a nice black bear.
