Two Men In Trouble For Illegally Shooting a Moose in Canada

A Western Wisconsin man won't be able to hunt in Ontario, Canada anytime soon and he has to turn over the head of a bull moose he shot illegally in 2006.

The Ontario Court of Justice banned Jason Skogstad, 37, of Eleva from hunting in Ontario for a year and fined him $4,000 for hunting and transporting the moose.

His hunting partner, Dennis Dziekan, 43, of Mondovi, was fined $1,000 for illegal possession and transportation of a moose.

Police say the two Wisconsin men were attending a hunting camp and that Skogstad used a nontransferable harvesting rights card from an Ontario resident.

    Thank you Aaron for stating that people are falsely accused. It's unfortunate that the paper and news channels don't tell the whole story. Before Lori calls someone a jerk she should call these people and get the whole story. Don't be a jerk when you don't know the truth and the facts of the story. Just because it's in the paper and on the news doesn't mean it's the truth and the whole truth. People are being smeared and it's not fair, unfortunately the news and paper are good at pointing the finger without researching, heresay is a strong thing and should be looked into before repeating.

    I feel for them guys because I was wrongly convicted of a simular crime in Ontario Canada because of the fact that I could not afford 25,000 lawyer fees and the taxpayers "MNR" could after the justice of the piece told the MNR to drop the case because our rights where violated several times during the process. Now I don't know the exact details of there case but after dealing with the MNR for several year during out case I'm sure at some point they where harrassed and rights broken!!
