Machin Man Faces Hunting Fines

Posted on Monday, April 16, 2018 08:50 AM

A Vermilion Bay man has been fined 2-thousand dollars for various hunting offences.

Michael Bernier pleaded guilty to entering private property without permission for the purpose of hunting and failing to immediately attach his game seal to a harvested deer.

The fine results from a November, 2017 incident in the north Waldof area where a white-tailed deer was followed onto private property and shot a second time.

The deer was loaded into the back of Bernier's truck, transported and hung without a game seal.

He has been banned from hunting for one year.
