    A CO can only comment on what the law legally allows so a CO can't tell you to take your kid out hunting if he's under age.
    But are they going to enforce this to the letter of the law, I highly doubt it. I've never seen or heard of it in my lifetime.

    Seems to me we aren't hearing everything. I have a hard time believing the CO doesn't understand the laws he is charged with enforcing...and by the report of the OP the CO is wrong....just does not add up.

    I too will gladly carry the name of poacher in this case.
    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    The OP stated they were pre-hunting.Assuming they were out in the woods with the kids,the CO was w-a-a-y-y out of line. There's no way anyone needs a hunting license simplyto be out in the woods with the kids. Somehow,I think there's a lot more to the story than that.

    I think you misread the OP. I take it as "prehunt kids" as being too young for the youth program. He also said "opening day". I'm not sure I'd want my young kids walking through the bush with me, with a group of other hunters. Sitting in a blind or on watch is a totally different issue. But, there's more to this incident than we know.

    It could be wrong, but I believe their is a difference between the control hunt and regular hunting season. One year, I had an ankle operation and asked a CO if I could get some to help me drag the buck. No was the response. That partisipating in the hunt. The control hunt is more about controlling the number of hunters.
    I went hunting with my father in the mid 50's. Theirs more to the story. They must have been .partisipating.

    Very likely. We get all these things filtered through the perception of the person reporting the story. Ask the CO and you might get an entirely different view of events.

    Here is the definition of hunting according to the reg book.

    Includes lying in wait, serching for, being on the trail of, pursuing, chasing or shooting at wildlife, weather or not the wildlife is killed, injured, captured or harassed. You need a hunting licence to do any of these things except where the fish and wildlife conservation act 1997 states otherwise.

    I know its a silly rule, i remember being out with my dad when i was just 6 or 7.

    What's silly about it? Its an inclusive definition that became necessary because some borderline hunters just had to push the boundaries of whats fair chase and whats not fair chase.
