The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry has laid a $3,500 fine to a man that was hunting in the region.

Court heard that on October 30, 2017, conservation officers from the MNRF’s Kenora Enforcement Unit conducted a white-tailed deer decoy operation on Tri Lake Road, near Nestor Falls. The decoy was set up to target unsafe hunting practices.

After observing the decoy on the roadway, the hunter stopped his truck and fired two shots from his rifle down the length of the road in the direction of the decoy.

Ricky Leclair of Timmins, Ontario, plead guilty and was given the $3,500 fine for carelessly discharging his firearm down a roadway. In addition, he is suspended from hunting for three years and must successfully complete the Ontario Hunter Education Course before being able to apply for another hunting licence.

The ministry reminds the public that it’s illegal and unsafe to shoot from, down or across a public road while hunting, and to discharge a firearm without due care and attention for people and property.

To report a natural resources violation, residents can call the MNRF TIPS line at 1-877-847-7667, contact your local ministry office or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
