News Hunting violations land four men in hot water SHARE ON: Taylor Ablett, staff Tuesday, Jul. 7th, 2015 Four men have been hit with fines for hunting violations. They are being charged almost $4000 for six charges among them. They are all from the Hamilton area, but were hunting in the Gogama area. Among the charges are illegally possessing a black bear, and killing a gray wolf when the season was closed. The hunter then realized the season was closed, so he buried the wolf, which spoiled the pelt. That fine alone is worth $700. The fines are as follows: $1,000 for unlawfully possessing a black bear $1,000 for illegally killing a gray wolf during the closed season $700 for allowing a pelt to spoil $400 for unlawfully transferring a game seal. Three others all pleaded guilty to unlawfully possessing a black bear and were fined $200 each.
