DEER HUNTERS WERE IN COMPLIANCE WITH ONTARIO’S HUNTING REGULATIONS

A coordinated effort by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Halton Regional Police found that 91 per cent of hunters checked followed the rules and contributed to a safe controlled deer hunt during November 3 to 7, 2008. Approximately 85 hunters were checked in this year’s controlled deer hunt in the Halton Region.  Areas of patrol included Halton Hills, Georgetown, Acton, Campbellville, Milton, Moffat and Burlington.

 Conservation officers seized one shotgun, issued two warnings and laid seven charges for the following offences: ·         Unlawfully hunting at night·         Unlawfully possessing a firearm at night·         Failing to wear proper coloured clothing while hunting·         Failing to wear hunter orange·         Unlawfully possessing two deer licences. The public is reminded that you are required to have a validation tag and a licence to hunt deer in a controlled deer hunt in southern Ontario.  Wearing a hunter orange vest and hat is critical to hunter safety.  For more information on hunting regulations, please consult the Hunting Regulations Summary 2008-2009 available from licence issuers, ServiceOntario/Government Information Centres and on the ministry’s website at ontario.ca/hunting. To report a natural resources violation, call 1-877-TIPS-MNR (847-7667) toll-free any time or contact your local ministry office during regular business hours.  You can also call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
