Well, looks like we won't be seeing anymore Brock Lesnar 99% effective scent spray ads anymore. Anyone know exactly what he did?

Failure to immediately affix tag... Waste of edible meat... And cut off sex identification I believe.

If they were caught with an untagged deer like the rumour mill says, then the guide is a big douchebag too.

Well, innocent until proven guilty I guess.  We will see what happens.  I will withdraw the douchebag label till then.

The outfitter should take the brunt of any charges on this one,, as for Brock,, ban him from hunting the province for life ( if He's Guilty ) send a message.

Agreed but I also believe the hunter should be charged as well.  I dont believe that there is a place in north America where wasting meat is accepted.  Perhaps the affixing of tags and removing sex may be more of a local thing.

"abandon/wastage of the edible flesh of big game"

This is a charge that really pisses me off, especially in the guiding community.  If you want to come to our province and hunt for horns and abandon the meat then stay the hell home.  If I ever saw that happen in person in the bush, it would get ugly in a hurry.  Well, if Brock was there, I might be a bit more diplomatic if you know what i mean.

I don't think I will say much till I actually hear what went on.  AS far as the meat it could be a fish cop that wanted to make a big stink over something little.  How many of you guys take the ribs or the inside loins on your animals?  Lots of guys don't as they use the gutless method or they don't bother cutting out the ribs.  Can you be charged for that?  I imagine so.  Could be the case here.

As for no tag affixed I don't get that one.  I know in the past I have waited to drag my animal out of the bush before putting the tag on just so it doesn't get ripped off on the way to the truck.  Could I be charged?  I imagine so. 

Best not to pass judgement yet but it does sound like he deserved a couple tickets.  It will be interesting to see how it gets played out. 

As far as the comments about the meat not being taken home.  I agree that it sucks these guys don't take it home but the thing is you wouldn't either.  If you were to do any hunting away from home like them you wouldn't pay the money to ship it home would you?  It is not like these guys don't want to take it home but with the costs involved it is not worth it. 
I go through it every year making lists of people to give my birds to because a lot of them get left here in my care.  With a little work it is easy to give away especially when taken care of and cleaned good but it is a pain to deal with.

All true nube,, we will have to wait on this one. We may never know the whole truth on what happened. The truth may be blown out of proportion by this CO and the real truth never brought to light. I was talking with a fellow just a couple hrs ago that knows the outfitter in question. Apparently he is a grazing lease manager in the area and is well known for being an upstanding guy.. The fellow I talked with found it very hard to beleive that he would do anything intentionally wrong.. This just may be a CO on a mission..

Also the fact that any CO would love to be the one to nail a well known athlete like this??  Who knows but I am sure we will all know what it is about in a while.  Too bad to hear of it really.  If it were you or I it wouldn't be in the news.  This just brings bad light to people that do not hunt or the anti crowd.

Funny part is that most of the charges in situations like this go against the hunter even when it was they guides call.
I know a couple cases where short sheep were shot. In my opinion the guide is a fault but in every case the hunter is charged and unless the guide steps forward and says he was the one at fault nothing happens to him.

They say that hunters no matter where they are from need to read and know the regulations just as residents do. It seems stupid to me but in many situations the guide or outfitter will walk away with no punishment.

Lesnar said the fine has been paid and its the kind of thing that happens to hunters all the time.

Really, I guess I've been missing out!!

Wow 6 month hunting ban, he will be ready for the deer opener next year but he won't make that trip for gophers in the spring I guess.

What a bunch of crap.  As far as I understand it he might not have tagged it right away.  Most likely he shot it and the fish cop wathed him gut it firts or darg it out to where he could have picked it up with his truck. 
I always wondered if a fish cop would be leaneant if you had to drag the animal out of some thick cover and you didn't tag it till it was out.  What would do if you did tag it on the spot and then loose the tag on the way out?  I was always a fan of the old metal tags more than these stupid paper tags myself.  Who knows what the small details of this all are but I bet if he would have fought it he would have been let off.

I can't see anything to serious going on here. I am sure if there was a serious violation the consequences would of been much harsher. Looks like a CO trying to get a high profile case.  Who knows ??

I agree on the old metal tags, that skinny piece of made in china haywire and sticker sure can't handle much. I don't tag an animal until its loaded usually which I suppose is breaking the law, but I can speak for every other guy who I have hunted with that generally do the same. So if every guy I know does it, and they are all law abiding, then its a discretionary thing and there are likely thousands of others who follow the same practice.
