I think I saw one of Jim Shockey's shows several years back on a hunt he did there. He used his own gun, a muzzleloader if I remember right so I assume from that it's possible.

When I went there 7-8 years ago, it was a major hassle. I used the outfitter’s rifle. Learn some French if you go. Other than the PH/Outfitter, almost no one spoke any English!

He's never had anyone bring one...he says it's possible but difficult. Just hoping to talk to someone that has actually done it.
