    Not sure Rick, wasn't there but I don't think they were rude. Anyone of the 3 adults could have taken the dogs in but way more thrilling for a kid to do so, and at least he wasn't sitting at home in front of a TV or play station!!

    A few years ago moose hunting in 18b, a C.O. came right into our cottage,all business and not that friendly!! After checking all of our moose licenses, which I don't believe we " had" to show him sitting in camp, he switched gears.

    All legal, all licenses in order, he became very friendly and was actually cordial and friendly. Then he starts trying to pump us for information on the coming and going of a couple of trucks, colour, time of day etcetera, etcetera. Needless to say, the old adage came into play. Heard nothing, saw nothing and know less.

    From Hitler to Mr Rogers in 10 minutes isn't the way to ascertain information, at least not from me!!

    Mos hunting vests meet the requirements of colour and 40# Sq inches. I have had packs over my vest and neither the CO's or the OPP had any issues when they wer checking our licenses.

    I'm surprised a CO would even lay a charge against a "youthful offender". The worst that could happen is attending Family Court and we all know how that would go,don't we?

    The FWCA makes it quite clear when and how blaze orange must be worn. As long as it's being worn as prescribed,the FWCA has been satisfied....full stop. Nowhere does it say it's illegal to use a back pack. Nowhere does it say the back pack must be blaze orange. If some CO wants to lay a BS charge like that or for not wearing a blaze orange helmet or some such idiotic nonsense just to "pad their stats",they should expect to go to Court. They would deserve to have their credibility thoroughly impeached and believe me,that goes a lot further as an example for every other CO that might be prone to silliness than any reaming given by a Crown counsel or senior supervisor.

    I think there have been lots of convictions for people charged with the hunter orange section. Most would have paid out of court rather than fight it I'm sure.

    Yes but they would have been for NOT wearing Orange or the illegal kind......have you every heard of someone getting a fine for not wearing enough?
