    Brent - you are correct on this. I am surprised to see the number of dissenting replies. Wow.
    As to the "the CO said" replies, looks like there are a lot of CO's who don't know the laws related to this or how Ontario/Canada's legal system works. Double wow.

    With the exception possibly of the deer being in plain sight of everyone involved.
    Well, if you read my post again, I said basically that the CO's were likely relying on the control, possession aspect. I didn't say I agreed with their interpretation. Being charged is a long way from being convicted !!

    As well, I can see the OIPRD complaint now....."the CO threatened to charge me if I didn't let somebody enter my private property".
    I don't think CO's are subject to OIPRD.

    Agreed, a CO might charge but I would bet anything there would never be a conviction.

    I agree. They might have a good chance if the dead deer was laying in the landowners front lawn !!

    Yea, we had a class of "game wardens" back in 1975 when I was in recruit. But then, the Director at the time came from the MNR, or Dept of Lands and Forests back then. Mennill Hall is named after him!!
