HUNTERS FINED FOR HUNTING WILD TURKEYS NEAR BAIT

Three Odessa-area men were fined $400 each for hunting wild turkeys within 400 metres of bait.

Travers Parslow of Odessa, Cory Parslow of Amherstview and Eldon Brown of Enterprise all plead guilty.

Travers Parslow also pleaded guilty to an additional charge of failing to immediately attach his seal to a wild turkey for which he received a suspended sentence.

Seized firearms will be returned to the hunters once the fines are paid.

The court heard that the three men were apprehended May 1, 2010, at the back of Travers Parslow’s property at Odessa.

They were hunting from blinds within 15 metres of large piles of bait.

Justice of the Peace Donna Doleman heard the case on May 19, 2010, in the Ontario Court of Justice at Napanee.
