Alberta Export Permit


All big game (including bison hunted under a Bison Special License), game birds, and furbearing animals require a provincial export permit ($20.00 plus GST) when they are to be conveyed beyond the borders of Alberta, except under the following conditions:

1. Hunters who lawfully harvest game birds, coyotes, white-tailed deer, mule deer, moose, elk, pronghorn antelope or black bear* under the authority of a hunting license or a right that is protected under Canadian Constitution, may export those species without an Alberta export permit if

in the case of upland game birds, the bird has been processed as a mounted specimen, or

  the shipment is accompanied by the hunter who killed the animal, and

 

the appropriate license is carried by the hunter who killed the animal being exported.

* Alberta prohibits the export of gall bladder and paws of black bear. You may export red meat, hide with claws attached, head or skull with teeth attached, but no other parts. See CITES Export Permit below.

2. Coyote that have been lawfully hunted by residents do not require a provincial export permit.

Bear hunts

 

U.S. hunters who are returning to the U.S. with their harvested black bears can do so without a provincial export permit or a federal CITES (Convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species) permit provided they meet the following criteria:

The hunter is returning to the U.S. with the bear within 30 days of the bear being killed or within five days of the close of the hunting season, whichever is soonest, AND

 

The hunter accompanies the shipment and carries the license under which the bear was harvested, AND

 

The hunter is shipping the bear in a fresh, frozen or salted condition. If the hunter wishes to ship the bear home in a taxidermized state at a later date, then a provincial export permit must be acquired

A provincial export permit and a federal CITES export permit are necessary for U.S. hunters who want to export a partial skin that has been tanned or preserved, a skull with the teeth attached (when not being shipped with a hunter returning home) or a taxidermized black bear.

 

A black bear skin that is not being included as part of a returning hunters baggage can be exported but requires a provincial export permit and a CITES export permit.

Wolf/coyote hunts

CITES Export Permit - for more information (1-800-668-6767)
Persons exporting wolves to points outside Canada must obtain a federal export permit issued in accordance with the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES). In addition, provincial export permits must be obtained for exporting these species, except for tanned wolf skin.

Tanning/taxidermy options can be provided.
