You have been lucky IMHO . It is a roll of the dice how they will handle any situation so best not to give them any opportunity It may not be a official park but I bet ??? it is NOT registered under the Nova Scotia Nature Reserves Protection Act Bill 73 as a reserve if so no hunting allowed and onus on hunter to check that out and signage is not required to be postedI know of one other who also got a warning, for the same reason. It's not marked as a park, there isn't any signage.
He also told me he ticketed someone that week for getting a deer there but he was firing from the road.
I haven't had bad experiences with law enforcement if you are honest and straight. I got stopped once for speeding and when the cop approached my window, he asked the typical how fast do you think you were going. I told him exactly how fast I was going (76). He was visibly shocked and asked me how fast I thought I should have been going. 70. He said, actually, it's a 50 zone but I can see how you missed the sign. He pointed it out to me (on the other side of the on ramp where it could easily be missed. So her key me go, telling me that I knew now so that excuse wouldn't work again. 😀
