As of January 1, 2008 all Non-Canadians coming to Canada must have a passport. There is a rush on passports and the wait is long so be sure to apply early.
Bring a copy of your hunt contract when you enter Canada, occasionally Canada Customs will ask to see it. All non-Canadians coming to Canada from other countries must comply with Canadian immigration rules and regulations regarding legal admission to Canada regardless of intention or reason for coming to Canada.
If you've ever had any criminal charges, even a D.U.I., you might have difficulty entering Canada and may need to clear it up months beforehand. It is your responsibility to make sure you will not be refused entry into Canada though. Refusal of entry by Canada Customs and Immigration is not sufficient reason for a refund.
You will have no difficulties bringing your sporting arms and ammunition into Canada (no handguns allowed).
