Illegal deer hunting has led to a Vermilion Bay resident facing $2,000 in fines.

Court heard that on Nov. 7, 2017, Michael Bernier was hunting in the north Waldhof area and shot a white-tailed deer. An investigation by conservation officers with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry revealed that Bernier shot the deer once and followed it onto private property, where he did not have permission to hunt.

Bernier then shot the deer a second time, killing it. The deer was then loaded onto the back of Bernier’s truck, transported and hung without a game seal. The deer meat was seized during the investigation and donated locally.

Bernier plead guilty and was fined $1,000 for entering private property without permission for the purpose of hunting, and $1,000 for failing to immediately attach his game seal to a deer that he had harvested. Bernier was also given a one-year hunting suspension.

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