MOOSE JAW, Sask. – The U.S. owner of a hunt farm in Saskatchewan has been banned from hunting in the province for five years after pleading guilty to wildlife act charges.
James Patrick Boyer of Vancouver, Wash., admits that a bull elk was illegally shot outside his hunt farm near Bethune and then illegally transported to British Columbia.
He was fined $8,001 in Moose Jaw provincial court.
Conservation officers investigated after someone called a government tip line about a suspected poacher.
