Air Travel Tips for Hunters and Shooters

Are you headed to the southern hemisphere for a winter hunt? Or perhaps you’re planning a cross-country airline trip with your precious match rifles? Remington has a helpful article on Airline Travel with tips on how to safeguard your guns while complying with airline flight regulations. The well-researched article contains specific recommendations for firearms, ammunition, bows and arrows, hunting knives, chemical repellents, and even fishing tackle.


The article links to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) web site, an excellent general travel info source. The TSA maintains a regularly-updated list of Permitted and Prohibited Items. You should definitely consult this list before heading to the airport. Of course, you should also check with your particular air carrier — each airline has its own specific baggage handling regulations. You’ll find links to the major domestic airlines in the article.
