A Melfort couple has been fined over 15-thousand dollars, following an investigation into illegal outfitting and the hunting of migratory birds.
72-year-old Garnet Roy Gunderson and 68-year-old Barbara Ann Lynne Gunderson were each given 2-year angling and 2-year firearm bans.
Garnet Gunderson was also given a 1-year hunting ban.
A year ago, undercover officers booked hunts with the couple, and while the pair weren’t present the day of the hunt, they did offer their limit of birds to the officers.
Officers then raided a rural property last September, which lead to the seizure of 20-thousand dollars worth of hunting equipment, including 2 guns, and 29 filleted walleye.
