SCI News for November 20
By Safari Club International • Issue #7 • View online
What a great time of year - crunching leaves, grunting bucks, and the joy of Thanksgiving just around the corner. Even better, SCI Convention is only (!) 77 days away! It’s a great time to be a hunter and a perfect time to invite a friend to join SCI and plan your next adventure.

MEMBER ALERT
All SCI members who plan to travel with their firearms outside of the U.S. should be aware that there has been some recent confusion about U.S. Customs and Border Patrol’s (CBP) willingness to accept Form 4457 for the temporary export of firearms. SCI has heard reports that CBP officials at some ports are refusing to accept Form 4457 when hunters/shooters attempt to use them upon returning with their firearms/ammunition to the United States. SCI has issued this advisory and steps to take to ensure your travel is not affected.
