Fines For Illegal Hunting in Ontario

Eric Lloyd of Kingston and Kyle Lloyd of Bowmanville both pleaded guilty to discharging a firearm from a vehicle, discharging a firearm from a public right-of-way, and trespassing to hunt.

They were fined $2,500 and $2,250 respectively. Both men were also prohibited from hunting for one year. A rifle, which had been seized will be returned upon payment of the fines.

Court heard that on November 1, 2010, on the Daytown Road in Rideau Lakes Township, shots were fired from inside a stationary truck at a deer decoy that was set up in a field by Ministry of Natural Resources conservation officers. The decoy was used due to numerous complaints from residents of road-hunting and trespassing by hunters on private property.
