failing to wear a proper helmet on an ATV
not having a lifejacket or safety equipment on a boat
hunting moose, white-tailed deer or migratory birds without a licence
failing to immediately seal a moose
failing to immediately seal a deer while party hunting
harvesting a moose without the appropriate licence

using lead shot to hunt migratory birds
failing to leave a fully feathered wing on a migratory bird for identification purposes
providing a false statement to a conservation officer
having open liquor in a vehicle

Officers also seized 33 moose that were harvested illegally, as well as two firearms.

33 moose in 9 days. This does not compute in my simple mind. Same people or all different people??

The MNR had a ride spot check set up on Highway 62 north of Madoc Sunday afternoon the first weekend of moose hunting. No worries if you are playing by the rules.

Not all the same people, this was across the mentioned regions of Bancroft, Parry Sound and Pembroke areas. Don't know if I would want to see the numbers from across Ontario if all these charges came just from these areas.

I always like to think most of us hunters play by the rules. This is certainly painting a different picture.

Only gets worse more North you go. I can imagine the fines laid across Ontario.

Most messed up thing I saw this year while I was deer hunting..

Two pick-up trucks parked on the side of the road filled with hunters and other men sitting in the bed of the truck WITH about 5 of there shotguns sticking out of the top of the bed while they push the bush... not only completely illegal but how dose it paint a pitcher for the people that donít believe in hunting It only takes 1 bad apple to ruin all the fun.

I know the best way to increase the moose herd. Increase the fines 10 fold & throw in a bit of jail time .
