What are the current Covid regulations with updated changes in December for U.S. citizens driving across the border for bear hunting this spring? Barring any more changes between now and May.

Who knows what the Covid restrictions will be this spring it’s a waiting game but by April we should know what we need for a spring hunt. The openings is for 2022.

""Date: Dec 23 2021

By: Kathryn Folliott

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he doesn’t anticipate having to close Canada’s border because of the omicron variant.

At the federal government’s COVID-19 briefing yesterday, following a discussion about rising omicron case counts and still-strong delta case counts, a reporter asked Trudeau, “why not completely shut the border?”

Trudeau noted that Canadians have a constitutional right to re-enter the country, no matter what. “We cannot close the border to any Canadian,” he said. “They are always allowed to come home.”

And as far as omicron goes, the key driver behind rising case counts is community transmission.

When it comes to further travel restrictions, “we are always open to any option to better ensure Canada’s safety,” he said.

But he noted that community transmission is the far greater threat with the highly contagious omicron variant.

Plus, omicron is already well entrenched in Canada, as it is in most countries around the world.

“We know that arrivals at the border represent an extremely small percentage of COVID-19 cases,” said Trudeau.

“So what we want to focus on is decreasing the size of gatherings over Christmas and the holidays.”

He added: “Closing the border at this point in time would not be beneficial.”

Later in the briefing Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos reiterated that Canada has some of the strongest border measures in the world.

The federal government’s travel advisory (Level 3) came into effect on Dec. 15 for at least four weeks, much to the shock and disbelief of the travel industry. There’s a long list of testing requirements for travellers, plus all passengers must be fully vaccinated. Meanwhile the government has eased travel restrictions against its 10 omicron-watch countries.

Also at yesterday’s briefing, Trudeau along with Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland announced that the federal government will extend eligibility for two of its COVID-19 financial aid programs, including the Canada Worker Lockdown Benefit, for those businesses facing potentially renewed capacity restrictions.

The CRA is now accepting applications for the Tourism and Hospitality Recovery Program (THRP) wage and rent subsidies through its online platform. A quick Q&A from ACTA offers tips for agents looking to submit applications.""

Trudope and Freeland u can’t trust either one. After the guys left last fall though I would go sit at the bait at camp just took my cell phone this bear was grassing in the field as I was getting close to the bait this bear is watching me and starts coming to meet me I made to the blind just in time she came right up to the door never thought of taking a close up she made me a little nervous to say the least nice bear.

I don't understand why politicians are always bragging that we have the strictest lockdown measures around. Manitoba brags about being the strictest in the country and Canada brags about being among the strictest in the world. That's literally the opposite of something to brag about.

I read yesterday that if you've tested positive for COVID19 atleast 10days before arrival and no more than 180days you are considered "recovered". As a result, you don't have to mess with the quarantine stuff or do the random testing at the border.

10-Feb-22
I don’t know ,news to me but maybe hopefully changes to the better. If I hear changes I will post.

Its right. I verifed with the canada covid hotline. It has to be a molecular test though.

Am I seeing this right if u had Covid and recovered u can cross into Canada?

From: Hancock West

They claimed you still be the shots but you can avoid the random test at the border. They mentioned the quarantine too but i didn't understand that part fully.

Alexis....did you and your brother in law have to separate due to political differences or because of the virus impacts?

Is JT's martial law attempt ever going to happen and if so what will that do to the border crossings?

This stuff was supposedly taken at the border in Alberta. If this is legit, I can see more restrictions to border crossers.

16-Feb-22
I decided to go on my own had to travel an extra 80-100 miles per day for one week with him and my guys didn’t care for that. We ate here one week and at his place one week but where he was located it was out if the way. Not sure what happened at the border in Alberta I hear different stories that the gun Stache was 1 mile away at a farm don’t know which one is true. As borders I don’t think anything is changed

Got 3 new bowsite guys coming from this thread this spring, one of my first hunters from 1994 has come many times him and his wife from Hills dale michigan he is looking for someone to come with if anyone out there is alone has the same problem maybe yous can get together would like to have him back once more he’s getting up in age 80 years young. There is going to be a lot of dead bears in mb this year what Natural resources have done is let the bear outfitters use a full years allocation that was lost over the last 2 years and use them tags over next 3 years above and beyond your normal allocation but u can only use 50 percent in one year That will help us from what we have lost I am thankful just about got my 50 percent sold for this year we’re running an extra week this spring the bears r thick. There will be some giants killed for sure. Pm me for info. Blessings on your day.

Well had 2 guys cancel out cold ft for the border but I don’t think it will get any better just need maybe a random test and vaccination papers, one guy had a graduation the week he was suppose to come it’s understandable when u have booked in two years ago. There is 4 tags left getting late in the game for spring but we’re thankful for who we have coming regardless. We r running 3 weeks this spring starting the 16th shooting for a week in the fall it starts August 15 good times. There is one spot left for the 23rd week or would run another week if we got a group of 4 guys this spring the week of the 9th or the June 6th week. God is good all the time we will go with his plan we may not be comfortable with it ,but we will follow by faith. Blessings on your day folks.

Alexis price if bait is insane this year, and of course fuel. I'm going to go broke with my personal bait, but oh well I can't miss the spring bear season. Good luck this spring!

15-Apr-22
Thanks David, yes everything is going to hurt we will keep chugging on. Good luck for and yours this year also.

That’s why it’s hard to get a big color u can see in pic this one was blonde last spring and he is going to be really dark chocolate or black.

Gary nothing moving yet along the mountain should be soon mid May should be good, Greg just practicing for when I sit up in the tree with u. This bear here we never did see in the daylight I wonder if he was white sure light color big boy.

I know that bear. Waited all week for him in 2019 to make a mistake but he never showed himself before dark. Hope he is still around.

30-Apr-22
That right u waited him out Joe but he never showed he will be bigger this year if he’s still around. Had a guy hit one with the bow in that area quite a few years back he said he was white 350 lbs, so I moved him to another spot not sure if it was that year or another he had a 250 lb coming in he would kill at weeks end and he did kill it he weighed 252 lbs he knew his bears. Maybe that last bear is a descendant.

I remember all those. I've been fortunate enough to shoot quite a few colored bears over the years but I remember this one the most. Hard to believe that was 20 years ago.
