Have you seen this? If its not one thing its another. Guess Nodak will be busy again this Fall!

BREAKING NEWS: US hunters cannot bring home game birds harvested while hunting in Canada due to restrictions by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) aimed at preventing the spread of a highly pathogenic strain of avian influenza.
The prohibition applies to both unmounted trophy imports and raw meat from game birds.

In a lot of cases the birds we eat are in Canada just a few seconds before they land in our spread.

These kinds of restrictions are meaningless.

Now ya' know how I felt, when I hunted Obregon, Mexico when the bird flu was at it's peak, back when it was 1st goin' on :doh
It would've cost more to "detox" the Cinamon Teal, once it was back in the U.S., than it would have been to mount it :eek:

I jist' shot a bunch fer' the locals ;)

Seems it only applies to birds harvested or traveled through certain zones:
Effective on the dates listed above (in bold) and until further notice, and as previously announced
(non-bold), the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service
(APHIS) Veterinary Services (VS) is restricting the importation of poultry, commercial birds,
ratites, avian hatching eggs, unprocessed avian products and byproducts, and certain fresh
poultry products originating from or transiting 20 zones in Ontario, 20 zones in Alberta, 5 zones in Quebec, 12 zones in British
Columbia, 9 zones in Saskatchewan and 1 zone in Manitoba . Any of these commodities
originating from or transiting a restricted zone are prohibited, based on the diagnosis of highly
pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in domestic birds


USDA APHIS Imports of animal products Scroll down to Temporary Restrictions

I seen that. I’m interested in how they are going to know that?
I called the border and asked a agent, they had no idea what I was talking about. Only poultry is what he knew of at this time.

How high will the fence have to be to keep those birds from making it here on their own?
