Traveling with long guns is easy in Canada. I had my 45/70 and 12ga with me. I was reminded , at the border that the use of a firearm for protection against an wild animal was strictly prohibited in Canada. I shipped my pistols from Montana and picked them up in Tok, Ak. On the way back , I shipped them back to Montana from Tok on the way back.
YUP.....BYPASSING CANADA WITH THE PISTOLS will work. For long guns, you have to think....'that's stupid' ...as that critter advances on you. Seems that BEAR SPRAY will be your only friend. I heard it works better than everything else, long guns included.

I am seriously counting down the days. We are ready to leave now, but want to be patient for better weather.

Thank you for writing the article. It has helped us plan, plan, plan...

Will call you in May before we leave to get any last minute advice.

Join us. We meet in Montana.
It is a trip of a lifetime. I did not write about the trip up the Alcan as I was limited on each article word count and I wanted to write about the most interesting/exciting aspects of the trip. Part three is almost finished and will be in the next TCT issue.

As I have mentioned before ,all the visitors centers are great resources of information. We found some great camping spots based on visitor center advice. Even though it was light almost all the time we tried to stop no later than 5-6 .
