First make sure YOU can get into Canada - you might be surprised how easily people are turned away. Any kind of record might keep you out.
Unless they've loosened their rules - I don't know. But about 10 years ago my brother and some buddies went up to do some hunting.
Got to the border and they wouldn't let one of the guys in because he had a dui on his record.
He had to rent a car and make the 8 hour ride back, and take the loss on his pre-paid lodging and licenses.
