Two Canadian men guilty of hunting license fraud - posted 9 months ago

How in the world can you lose privileges retroactively, when they presumably hunted during those retroactive years?

To Jake S.: Residency requirements and paying taxes to a State are not even close to the same thing. I pay income taxes in multiple States due to work travel--doesn't make me a resident of any of them. Same for property taxes. Owning property in Canada doesn't make me a Canadian citizen or resident. No different for the States. Laws are pretty cut and dry here. As an attorney, I've got to say that this is 100% consistent with the Constitution (since you referred to it)--all powers not expressly granted to the federal government in the Constitution are "reserved to the States," including States rights to legislate their own residency requirements. This was straight up fraud on the part of these two guys.
