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.
