Moose Poacher Gets Lifetime Ban
Not sure if the link will work, but it looks like these scumbags got what was coming to them.
40 sets of moose antlers?
Sounds like these guys were earning an income from selling the illegal moose meat.
Good deal in MA they probably would have gotten probation!
There's a few articles on this case. Some natives were involved along with this butcher shop.
Kevin, does Canada have a reciprocal agreement between provinces?
Canada does not have an official reciprocal agreement; however, each province can have specific legislation that makes it unlawful for anyone to be eligible for a hunting licence if they are prohibited/suspended anywhere else ( including in the US).
Alberta is an example of a province that has legislation that prohibits anyone from obtaining a hunting licence that is currently suspended from anywhere.
My guess is that a lifetime ban on hunting will work like when they take a guy's license after multiple DUIs. They often still drive and still drive drunk.
