A Wisconsin man is facing a $3,000 fine for an offence under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, after illegal and dangerous moose hunting activity in the Kenora district.

Court heard that on October 22, 2017, a Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry conservation officer investigated and determined that the hunter was standing on Cedar Narrows Road in the Kenora district, when he shot down the roadway at a bull moose, which was also standing on the road.

The hunter plead guilty and was served the $3,000 fine for discharging a firearm without due care and attention, or without reasonable consideration for people and property. He also received a one-year hunting suspension and must complete the Ontario Hunter Education Course before being able to apply for another licence.

The ministry reminds the public that it is illegal and unsafe to shoot from, down or across a public road when hunting, and that all party hunting rules must be followed when hunting for big game. 

To report a natural resources violation, call the MNRF TIPS line at 1-877-847-7667 or contact your local ministry. You can also call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). 

The ministry has also developed an online tool to help solve cold cases. Conservation officers in Dryden originally developed the interactive online map to show the number of unsolved cases throughout the province and educate the public on what conservation officers do, and the ministry has expanded on the idea and brought it province-wide. The map has markers for each unsolved case in the area, and a summary of what took place during the incident and why officers are investigating.
