Just an updated bit of information for you. Last year Saskatchewan began allowing a 3 day limit possession on waterfowl, so now you can bring a max of 24 each of Canada geese, 60 snows and 24 ducks back with you. In addition, if you hunt upland, you can bring back 24 huns and 6 sharptails (season limits/tagged). We have no trouble transporting our game back thru US customs, but we make it easy for the agents by having separate coolers for each hunter (three of us) and label each package with the id of the game (mallard, gadwall, hun, sharptail, snow, Canada, etc).
If you appear organized, they seem to breeze you through the border more easily. Toughest part is filling out that danged form with the proper info in the proper blank. Also, since the Canadian parliment finally did away with the gun registration for taking firearms into Canada, you may want to get a customs form that shows your proof of ownership of your firearm(s) prior to entering Canada. Could avoid a hassle when re-entering the US.
We stop in Omaha for dry ice for the coolers and our game makes it back to NC still frozen. We haul a 12' trailer for our gear and game. Well worth the effort and highly recommended. This'll be my 28th year up there.
Where are you planning on hunting? Your drive will be short enough that I think a trailer would really benefit you, especially if you are planning to field goose hunt. I have a small motorcycle I load in our trailer and motor it back to our field spread to keep from having to walk so far to and from the hidden truck and trailer. Got a piece of camo to cover it and just lay it down in the field or park it in some brush.
Just be aware that hunting up in Saskatchewan is ADDICTIVE!
