Conservation Act Approved In Michigan
Washington, D.C. – Safari Club International (SCI) congratulates the Michigan House of Representatives for their bipartisan effort passing the citizen-initiated Scientific Fish & Wildlife Conservation Act (SFWCA) today. With today’s vote the SFWCA becomes law.
“SCI would like to thank the House members for their bipartisan support in protecting science based conservation in the state today by supporting SFWCA,” said Merle Shepard, Past President of SCI and Michigan resident. “In addition to the elected officials who support scientific wildlife management, SCI would like to thank the Michigan Bear Hunters Association, Michigan Hunting Dog Federation, Michigan Trappers and Predator Callers Association, Michigan United Conservation Clubs, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Upper Peninsula Whitetails, Inc. of Marquette County, Upper Peninsula Whitetails, Inc., Upper Peninsula Sportsmen’s Alliance, Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, National Rifle Association, and the National Shooting Sports Foundation. The sportsmen’s community truly came together in support of SFWCA and to take a stand against HSUS’s constant ballot box bullying.”
Out-of-state anti-hunting groups, led by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), have launched two referendum drives in Michigan seeking to overrule Michigan’s wildlife biologists on game management decisions. With their deep pockets, they know that once they get on a statewide ballot, it’s just a matter of spending millions of dollars in misleading advertising. They are currently trying the same strategy in Maine, just as they tried it here in 1996 and in 2006. SFWCA puts an end to the constant referendums and campaigning for proper wildlife management and replaces it with proper scientific management of wildlife.
The Scientific Fish & Wildlife Conservation Act:
Ensures that decisions affecting the taking of fish and game are made using principles of sound scientific fish and wildlife management;
Provides for free hunting, fishing and trapping licenses for active members of the military, and;
Provides appropriations for fisheries management activities within Michigan necessary for rapid response, prevention, control and/or elimination of aquatic invasive species, including Asian carp.
“We are proud of every Safari Club International Member who volunteered their time to ensure the final passage of the Scientific Fish & Wildlife Conservation Act this week as it became law,” concluded SCI President Craig Kauffman.

Two Bancroft area men have been fined a total of $2,250 after pleading guilty to illegally trapping beaver and fisher. Dale MacDonald was fined $500 for trapping fur-bearing mammals during the closed season, and another $500 for making false statements in an application for a licence. He was also fined $250 for possession of illegally-killed wildlife, and had his trapping licence suspended for one year. Dewayne Simpson was fined $500 for obstructing a conservation officer and another $500 for trapping more fur-bearing mammals than his licence allowed. His trapping licence was suspended for one year. The court heard that in March 2014, a Bancroft district conservation officer received a complaint of possible illegal trapping of fisher during the closed season. The investigation revealed that MacDonald and Simpson were involved in illegal trapping of both beaver and fisher. Justice of the Peace Jack Chiang heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, Bancroft, on August 5, 2014.

Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry conservation officers remind campers of the 21-day camping limit on Crown land.
Canadian residents may camp for free on Crown land for up to 21 days in a calendar year at any one site, except where posted otherwise. The camper and the camping unit must move a minimum of 100 metres to a new site after 21 days.This ensures that sites are available to other campers. A camping unit can be a tent, trailer, tent-trailer, recreational vehicle or camper-back. Any mobile type of accommodation is allowed.
The ministry may post signs to limit certain kinds of travel or activity, including camping, and close forest access roads for reasons of public safety or environmental protection. You may contact your local ministry office for more information about the Crown land in the area you want to visit.
Non-residents of Canada, 18 years of age or older, who wish to camp on Crown land north of the French and Mattawa rivers, may need a Crown Land Camping Permit. Permits are available from fishing and hunting licence issuers and from ServiceOntario centres in northern Ontario. Please visit Camping on Crown Land for more information.
Campers are responsible for cleaning up their campsites, and should use Crown land in an ecologically sound and responsible manner. Leaving or illegally disposing of garbage on Crown land damages the natural environment and could be hazardous to the public. Offenders can be fined up to $10,000 under the Public Lands Act and be required to pay the cost of cleaning up.

Two West Nipissing residents have been found guilty of unlawfully hunting a bull moose and using a vehicle to pursue the animal following complaints about a YouTube video of the incident.
Cory Crowder was fined $2,000 and Stephanie Pellerin was fined $1,500. In addition to the fines, Crowder and Pellerin were ordered to destroy all copies of the video filmed on the night of the offence and remove all related Internet postings.
Court heard that in October 2013, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry received complaints from the public about a video posted on YouTube. The video, taken by Stephanie Pellerin from inside the vehicle on the night of October 10, 2013, clearly showed the vehicle pursuing the moose while Crowder was driving. The moose was visibly distressed. The moose was chased off the Smokey Creek Bridge where it jumped, and died of its injuries. Crowder later returned with a friend to retrieve the moose.
A North Bay man has been fined a total of $1,500 for deer hunting offences.
David Munro pleaded guilty to charges under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act and associated regulations. He was fined $500 for unlawfully attaching a game seal to a deer killed by another person, $500 for attaching the wrong seal to an antlerless white-tailed deer and $500 for failing to provide required information on a deer seal.
Court heard that on November 9, 2013, Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry conservation officers conducted a hunting camp check at 211 Dowdall Road in Nipissing Township where they observed three harvested deer hanging from a meat pole in front of the camp. They inspected the three deer and game seals.
An investigation revealed that Munro attached another person’s antlered deer seal to an antlerless deer. An antlerless deer can be harvested only if the hunter or hunting party holds an antlerless deer validation tag. Munro also tagged another deer he had harvested with his own seal, but failed to notch out the required date and time of the kill on the seal.
