Man Fined $12,000 for Outfitting Without a Licence

Released on February 11, 2014

A New Brunswick man was fined $12,000 after being found guilty of two charges under The Saskatchewan Outfitter and Guide Regulations in Meadow Lake Provincial Court.

Michel Lanteigne was convicted of outfitting without an outfitter’s licence and fined $10,000.  He was also convicted of unlawfully advertising his availability to act as an outfitter and fined an additional $2,000.

Pierceland conservation officers began an investigation following a complaint in the fall of 2011.  Saskatchewan conservation officers collected evidence over the next two years, working with New Brunswick conservation officers.

“Unlawful outfitting takes away from legitimate outfitters and hunters, while hindering our ability to manage Saskatchewan’s white-tailed deer, moose and bear populations,” Ministry of Environment Compliance and Enforcement Director Ken Aube said.  “Our officers worked closely with their colleagues in New Brunswick to bring this case to a successful conclusion, which we hope will deter others who may think about abusing our wildlife resources.”
