Letter: Hunter makes an apology

To the editor:

I am a hunter in the Okanagan and I was out hunting, shooting at a four-point mule deer, but I shot a three-point instead.

I did not call it in. I left it. I was reported.

I was lucky, I received fines and did not lose my gun. My fines were $1,150. If I had reported it, I would have got a small fine.

The conservation officers will treat you fair if you call it in and then the meat will go to someone who needs it.

I apologize to all the hunters in the Okanagan.

Barry Pattie,

Kelowna
