Appeal court dismisses treaty hunter's conviction for illegal hunting

A Manitoba man convicted of illegal hunting after shooting a moose has had an acquittal reinstated, after three Court of Appeal judges dismissed a conviction handed down in June.

The man, a status Indian from Treaty 5 territory, had pleaded not guilty after he hunted a moose a day before the season opened, without a licence and on private land near Swift Current in September 2015.
