A Norfolk County man will be thinking twice the next time he hunts for deer out of season.
A Langton-area man has been fined $2,000 for hunting white-tailed deer out of season and has been banned from hunting for two full years.
The matter was heard at a Simcoe Courtroom.
A conservation officer and a canine unit went to a woodlot in Langton after getting a tip about a deer that was shot out of season.
While there, the canine unit located a site in which there was evidence of a recently-killed deer.
A DNA analysis of processed deer meat found in the man's possession, along with samples of hair and blood collected from the site, confirmed they were from the same female deer.
The investigation determined that Nicholas Pickerd had shot the deer out of season and at a time when the female deer would likely be pregnant.
