TRAVEL TIP #5 - TSA Firearm Clearance

Hunters travelling with firearms should always make sure that their weapons have been cleared through TSA at the airport each time they check them through on a flight - verify everything is OK before proceeding through to the security checkpoint and your departure gate.  This is especially important when coming back into the U.S.  After you have cleared customs and when rechecking your baggage for your connecting flight, be sure to notify the screening agent that you have firearms and make sure they have passed through the screening process before leaving the area and proceeding to your gate.
