Three men have been convicted for poaching violations under the Wildlife Act and were fined a combined $14700.
On May 17th, 36 year old Raymond Sparvier of Melville pleaded guilty to 2 counts of unlawfully hunting and was fined $35-hundred dollars.
His co-accused, 29-year-old Christopher Weisgerber of Regina was found guilty of 2 counts of unlawfully hunting; failing to appear in court, he received a $56-hundred dollar fine.
26-year-old Clinton Durocher also of Regina, was found guilty on two wildlife-related charges. He also failed to appear in court, received a 56-hundred dollar fine, and a one-year hunting suspension.
It stems from a November 2015 investigation by conservation officers and the RCMP, into two cases of illegal hunting on private land near Kamsack.
Conservation officers received a tip about an elk shot out of hunting season on private land about 8 kilometres out of Kamsack.
A few days later officers located a white-tailed deer killed on private land about 10 kilometres from Kamsack.
