A Wisconsin man recently pleaded guilty to hunting violations under The Wildlife Act and was fined $4,200 in Spiritwood provincial court.

In November 2016, the individual was charged and fined by Ministry of Environment conservation officers for hunting without a valid licence and was told he would not be able to apply for a big game, game bird or trapping licence in the province for at least one year.

A few weeks later, officers determined that the accused had used the services of an outfitter to hunt white-tailed deer in the Spiritwood area after being initially fined and suspended.

Officers interviewed the outfitting camp owner who confirmed the accused had been a client of his for a period of a week in early December. The individual was subsequently charged for hunting without a licence.

Willard Niessner, age 80, of Manitowoc, Wisconsin was fined $4,200 for unlawful hunting and given a two-year suspension from applying for a big game licence in the province.
