Hunting and fishing offences will cost a Sault Ste. Marie man more than $4,000 in fines.

Cameron Tucker was checked by Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry conservation officers on the St. Mary’s River on Jan. 15. He was ice fishing.

Tucker presented an expired fishing licence from his truck. Officers saw signs of hunting, a release says.

An investigation found Tucker shot a white-tailed deer last October.

He used a compound bow while standing on the travelled portion of Ranger Lake Road in Renwick Township.

Tucker wasn’t supposed to hunt due to previous hunting convictions related to an October 2016 incident on St. Joseph Island.

He also failed to update his address on his outdoors card within 10 days of changing residences.

Tucker pleaded guilty to hunting big game without a licence, discharging a firearm on the travelled portion of a roadway, violating a court order and fishing without a licence. Fines total $4,125.

Justice of the Peace Paula Nichols heard the case in Ontario Court of Justice in the Sault on July 4.
