    Mick I suspect there is bound to be fall out - given the vast bible belt fringe in the US and their holier than thou approach to most things - the sponsors will not want anyone who is less than a pillar of virtue associated with them. I can only suspect that rather than mount of defence - based from the US which would no doubt be very costly - he may have thought a throw your hands up and plea approach may have left less of a social media fingerprint. Who knows but the feline is well and truly out of the suitcase - so unfortunately for AG I suspect the faeces is about to hit the rotating cooling device big time!

    Well. That is crap. It's now officially cheeper to go poach in a national park than go on a guided hunt apparently.
    Hopefully they will appeal the conviction and take his hunting licenses in Oz.

    Altho if I'm reading the regs right he has a criminal record now involving harming animals which would make him ineligible for r/g lic anyhow. Guess he's done in nsw for the next 10 years.

    I may be wrong, but by not getting convicted doesn't that mean it doesn't go on his record?

    Yeah, that confused me for a bit, Depends on the magistrate they can still record it if they want, just usually don't. It's irrelevant tho. Regulation says guilty not convicted, he plead guilty so can't legally get a licence in nsw.

    With the current 3 year suspension of deer regs in NSW it only will affect him for "R" or legal hunting in declared forests.
    Effectively you don't require "G" licence until November 2021

    A guilty plea means that you accept the charges that have been laid- or you admit you have acted unlawfully - there is now a criminal record with such a notation made by court. So if asked on any questionnaire " have you ever been charged with a criminal offence" he will have to respond in the affirmative. So for all those saying he got off scot-free that is not the case, he has definitely paid. He has paid financially as legal representation especially "silk" i.e. barristers do not come cheap, he has paid privately as no doubt it has irreversibly damaged his reputation, here and overseas, and he has paid psychologically as he has to bear the stigma of a criminal record. Whilst some may critique the lack of monetary penalty imposed by the court, given his personal antecedents, in my view the court ruling was appropriate.

    During application for hunting licences in most US states and Canadian provinces the applicant is asked precisely that. Even more specific to wildlife offences in most cases.

    Will be interesting to see if this impacts his ability to hunt in north America or if it's a case of 'as you were'.

    If it doesn't, what do you have to do?
    The degree of satisfaction gained from the accomplishment of a goal is directly proportional to the hardships and challenges overcome in order to achieve it.
