    Gilroy - What your moose gang did was the right thing to do. Phoning it in and and admitting that kind of mistake results in a minimal fine and the confiscation of the animal. Covering it up and getting caught is much worse.

    Unfortunately though, it appears that your knowledge of the way some people in this province live (abject poverty) ends at around Coe Hill and Bancroft. You're retired, take a few days and drive up North, real North, and visit some of the poorer communities and see if you still have the same idea of what "poverty" is. Visit some of the towns that have (or had) a pulp and paper mill that used to employ thousands and now employ hundreds, if any at all. See if you still think it's so black and white.

    That's untrue. It's obvious your experience here is somewhat limited.

    The thread was about moose to start, but it's become a discussion of poaching in general. In the case of shooting a moose out of season, given current conservation concerns, a CO would likely not turn a blind eye. As I previously suggested, TWICE, it would depend on the circumstances.

    COs have discretion, and they use it. It's a fact. Admit it and move on.

    Absolutely they have discretion and from my experience they will use it to give you a summons.Happy Now.

    Really I see Cops and courts give people breaks they even give gang bangers breaks and that happens often.

    Many years ago over 30. I think I was around 14 at the time my brothers 12 and 10. We were fishing the Loc lomond lakes outside of Saint John NB. My Dad and a friend of his who was a CO took us fishing for browns. There was a minimum size back that if I recall I think it was 14 inches. My youngest brother caught his first brown at best it was under 13 inches. I still remember that old fella looking at my brother and asking him if it was his first trout. Dad's friend the CO looked at him and smiled "Looks like a good 14 inch to me."

    My mother was born shortly after WW2 they were dirt poor she was raised on poached game from deer to upland game as well as the poor man's food lobster.

    Sometimes rules are broken for many different reasons in life.

    That probably explains why we have very few Moose up north and the lack of tags.BTW I have hunted White River, Manitouwadge,
    and North of Thunder Bay (dog lake rd areas).

    And you hunt with poachers, Gilroy, by your own admission. Having retired from working with murderers.

    Grow up.

    Gilroy, as has been said before, by me and several others on here. You're out of touch with the real world and real poverty. Those few times you went hunting up north couldn't possibly show you how some folks live. You were a 1 week tourist passing thru and no doubt, way past your comfort zone.
    "Food Bank"? "Thrift Store"? Com'on man, wake up! I am a regular volunteer at our local foodbank here in the little town close to where I live. Not every place up here has a foodbank. They're very scattered and it can be impossible for many to even get to them due to living in the country with no vehicle.
    You don't know what poor is do you? Why don't you volunteer some of your time and help out. Go do dishes at your local soup kitchen a couple times a month? In the meantime get off your self righteous butt and quit trying to stir the pot.

    So someone in your camp made a mistake, and admitted it. But since you now belong to a camp full of "horrible" poachers none of the "righteous hunters" should talk to you right? Or at least that is what they say.

    Good thing the rest of us on here are human too. Guess you will still have someone to talk to..
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.
