    So did you have them processed there or back in the states? we flew up and getting them all back was really expensive. Thought of having them made into sausage there and shipping but dont know if that would be any cheaper or the better way to go.

    Personally I would be very careful about this, in order to transport migratory game birds you need to have a wing attached. The only time you can take that wing off is when you reach your place of residence. A temporary camp/hotel/camper I would not consider a place of residence, so you will need to have a wing attached. That and you are crossing an international border with migratory game birds, no way to tell if that sausage is made up of 24 Canada Geese or 50 ducks (<-- over your procession limit), very likely that sausage would be seized and the hunters charged.

    Chris is right. Very tricky. I am sure, with the right documentation, it could be done, but I wouldn't play with it. Expensive to ship? Sure. Lose your license for 10 years? What is that worth?

    Our outfitter cleaned the birds-breasted out with a wing attached- and we brought them back across the boarder like that. It was simple and easy. And while we had the freezer labeled with the contents, no one checked us at the crossing. It was just a simple, "Welcome home." I have a meat processor here that is making the sticks.

    Yes, it can pretty easy to do if you have game shears. Just take the breast plate out and cut the ribs.
