DAWSON CREEK -- Dawson Creek hunter Jason Lucas has been found guilty for hunting on cultivated land without consent.

The Courts have ordered him to pay $1545 in fines to the Habitat Conversation Trust Foundation.

This stemmed from an incident in August 2020 where Lucas shot and killed a moose.

Lucas has to pay a $300 fine, a victim surcharge of $45 and a $1200 restitution fee. He’s also been banned from hunting for one year.

Conservation Officers have also seized Lucas’s rifle, ammunition and moose meat.
