Okay to Transport Game Birds Into the United States
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has clarified that the temporary ban on the importation of all unprocessed (not fully cooked) avian products from Saskatchewan does not include wild game birds taken by hunters. The USDA will allow the entry of hunter harvested birds and wild bird commodities from Saskatchewan into the United States.
All requirements for transporting game birds over the border are still in effect. Please refer to the Game Bird Transportation Requirements in the 2007 Saskatchewan Hunters' and Trappers' Guide for more information.
The temporary ban is in reaction to Avian Influenza being discovered on a chicken farm near Regina, Saskatchewan.
