Hi Team

Does anybody know what the requirements are to drive into Idaho from Canada with a rifle?

Trying to make the most of the hunting opportunities while im over there.

Be good to hear from someone who has done it.

Cheers

Mike

Be careful to make sure you can go back into Canada with firearm if you head back north.
I have a mate in Montana I can ask. Although he is a US citizen so probably have different rules.

I haven't done it but I'm sure you'll need to apply using this form - https://www.atf.gov/firearms/docs/form/form-6nia-applicationpermit-temporary-imp...

What are you hunting in Idaho?  I've applied for Idaho Mountain Goat.

Asked my mate in Montana this morning, He suggested ringing the customs office at the border crossing you intend to cross. He said they are usually very helpful.
