Alberta Man Fined $5,600 for Hunting Violations

Released on April 11, 2017

An Alberta resident and former hunting television personality was recently fined $5,600 after a Broadview provincial court judge found him found guilty on several charges under The Saskatchewan Wildlife Act and Regulations.

In 2011, Alberta Fish and Wildlife officials contacted Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment conservation officers with reason to believe that a white-tailed deer had been illegally taken near the town of Grenfell.

After investigating, Saskatchewan conservation officers determined that a white-tailed buck had been shot in the wrong wildlife management zone.  The deer was then unlawfully taken back to Alberta.

Following the trial, Jason David, 43, of Hinton, Alberta, was fined for hunting without a licence, being in unlawful possession of wildlife, the unlawful export of wildlife and falsifying his big game draw application.

David was known as Chris David on television, appearing on hunting shows such as The Hunting Chronicles and No Limits TV.  This hunt was recorded and aired as an episode on Wild TV.  David is no longer on those shows.

David will also receive a one year hunting suspension.

Hunting dates and zones are put in place to ensure effective wildlife management.  Surveys are completed to identify deer populations and determine the number of draw tags that are made available to the public.

To report a fisheries, wildlife, environmental or forestry violation, contact your nearest Ministry of Environment Office or call the province's Turn In Poachers (TIP) line at 1-800-667-7561 or #5555 from any SaskTel cell phone, or report a violation online at www.saskatchewan.ca/tip.  You may be eligible for cash rewards from the SaskTip Reward Program.  Callers can remain anonymous.
