    I have a spot on a river that is the boundary between two municipalities. One has Sunday gun hunting and one has no Sunday gun hunting. I asked both municipalities and the cws and conservation authority and they all told me they didn't know exactly where the boundary was in this case, but it's typically centreline of river.
    This means late season (ie January, and late February) I can stand on one side of the river and shoot geese and not on the other side and on Sunday's I can only stand on one side of the river. I hunt an island in the centre of this river and where the boundary lies on it I'm not too sure.
    In a case like this, you wouldn't likely be charged and would never be convicted in court. It would be up to the crown to prove you were in the wrong area.

    Bow is considered a firearm for this.

    When the old Fish & Game Act was re-written and became the Fish & Wildlife Conservation Act in 1997,many of the old regulations were not "brought over" resulting in on-going confusion by older hunters and anglers that still swear on a stack of Bibles that the old regs are still in place when,in fact,they aren't. Download copies of the FWCA and searches of Ontario Regulations are a finger tip away. In short,if the regulation isn't there,it's no longer in force.

    I believe it has to be a "maintained" road in this bylaw.

    They train CO's to know all the game laws and must pass some kind of proficiency test I assume or at least I hope that's where my tax dollars go ? How do they expect a layman to know all the laws ? I have heard and been witnessed to charges being laid ( and of all things those being charged were newbies) when a stern lecture and a warning would have been a more proper way to handle the minor infractions. Shame on the MNR for lowering their men in the field to the point where they are looked upon as meter maids whose job is to hand out tickets and meet their qouta ! Also with GPS and satellite mapping available why is our goverment bodies handing out inferior maps ?
    Good Luck & Good Hunting !

    Probably one of the MOST violated rule is "unloading and reloading when crossing a barrier"

    ....Never seen a guy stop and unload to cross a fence in all the years I have been dogging with the gang.

    Where is that regulation/law??

    Or when you say rule, do you mean firearms safety rule?

    Is that any different than what most police do, they lay charges and then let you fight it out in the courts, often times they are wrong but it is up to you and your lawyers to "prove them wrong" and this can bet an expensive situation.
