Saskatchewan conservation officers were alerted to the hunt in 2011 by Alberta Fish and Wildlife officials.

Investigators determined the buck was unlawfully taken to Alberta following the hunt.

A Broadview, Sask. provincial court judge found David guilty of hunting without a licence, unlawfully possessing and exporting wildlife, and falsifying his big game draw application.

He was fined $5,600 and given a one-year hunting suspension.
