    They do this ALOT in the states with remote control decoys and such. In my opinion he should lose his licence for way longer than 1 year?

    This was preventable… basic Hunter safety stuff. Sadly too many guys ruin their hunting trips because of stupidity. The fines are one thing but the grief from the spouse just piles on.

    I feel somewhat sorrow for this fellow hunter this must be very embarrassing for him, today with so much social media the incident is so much more public which makes it worse. The grief could even continue with problems renewing a firearms licence?

    Yes, it would be hard to argue that is wasn't unsafe handling of a firearm? Although he is required to re-take the Hunter Education course again?

    Lifetime ban from owning a firearm would be appropriate!!

    From the description in the article,CO's had controlled access to the area while the decoy was deployed. That means that the dummy had to go passed the CO's at the traffic points. I guess it didn't dawn on him that something was up. He still shot down the road at the decoy ( likely destroying it @ $3K each) and the guys were all over him like white on rice. That takes a very special level of stupid to pull that crap. He should lose his hunting license permanently. I wonder why he wasn't charged criminally? There certainly should have been ample evidence for them.

    I think he got away lightly for such a illegal and dangerous act. He should be ashamed and his family and friends probably already knew what kind of man he was.

    Good result, but the MNRF should make it crystal clear which roads are safe to shoot on and which are not as the interpretation could get cloudy sometimes. E.g. Is an ATV trail barely big enough to fit an ATV and filled with vegetation considered a road? when does it become a road for purposes of this rule.

    Also, what happened to that hunter last year where he shot 2 moose by the side of the road on Hwy 17? https://northernontario.ctvnews.ca/v...tion-1.5644396. People were saying that there were apparent violations: shooting from a traveled portion of a roadway, no hunter orange, and having a loaded firearm on a roadway. I don't see a charge in the records for him.
