Probably too late anyway. But thanks.

The Fish Cops had been watching it all along. and took copies
illegally. Mike has yet to see the video.

I think Mike is about ready to start posting the video again.
Not much that they can do now.

I'll get some video outside the courtroom. See what they have
to say for themselves.

Mike is in the Hospital

Mike is in hospital with high blood pressure complicated
with the bad cold he had of late. He was admitted at
8:25pm Yesterday after a grueling 3 hour session with
Fish and WildLife. What's that Feather, are the breasts
out of those birds. A total of 12 or so charges, were
laid out from the video, which eventually boiled down
to just the Weasel shooting.

Computer News is going to do some checking around.
Carry out a Citizens Investigation if you like.

First there will be interview some local Trappers asking
them for testimonials for Mike and I'll ask them what
they think of The Alberta Trappers Associations
performance so far. I'll be requesting interviews
with the Association people who initialted this witchhunt.

Locals, who would like to voice their opinion in this
matter are asked to come forward. Or supply me with some
hard hitting questions.

First NewsCast later today or early tomorrow. So email,
Call or post your comments on the various trapper forums.

It's 5:40am Saturday here. I will post a quick update to
Mikes status after I see him. I'm heading over to see Brownie
he just didn't what to stay here last night.

I will be debreafing Mike, finding out what when on yesterday.

What the Alberta Trappers Association should do?

What the Alberta Trappers Association should do?

Is it illegal to send your dog after a bird
out of season. When there is no chance of him
catching it. What if you videoed that in your
back yard and our local FC was watching?

Maybe CrossWalk cameras get the software to
recognize you by your walk. Will we start to
get ticket from the POlice. Maybe your childs
birthday party video shows something amiss.

The Bear video was completely legal. Why did
the "Alberta Trappers Association" come down
hard on Mikes trapper friend. I'm sure the
members would be very disappointed in them.
Maybe even hostile. Will they be providing any
assistance to Mike from here on in?

Call or email these folks and find out why.

Gordy Klassen Alberta Trappers Association President
trappergord@telus.net
780-831-0616 or fax 780-957-3766
From what I understand it was Gord that tore the strip
off of Mikes friend?

Maurice Mahe Alberta Trappers Association local
Whitecourt Alberta
780-778-4581
albertatrappers.com is their site

What do you do when the Best trapper in town
doesn't have a trapline. All kinds of friends
of the FC have traplines and have never skinned
or trapped anything ever. Mike skins for other
trappers with lines. And he is sitting home with
high anxiety right now.

Does anyone have back issues of Big Buck magazine.
3 or 4 years ago FC got a very big Buck under strange
circumstances. I think it got the front page. The
issue date and possible pic would be appreciated.

The Deputy Minister of the Fish and Wildlife will be
seeing me in their office Shortly. Numerous complaints
about the local FC have fallen on deaf ears. So their
is no point in going to his boss. He is a problem as
well. If anybody have that information please post it.
I will be looking it up here.

I have been hearing lots about FC in the last couple
years. Small towns are that way. I would be hard pressed
to find anybody that would come forward and put in a
testimonial for him. Very hard.

Will we remain quiet when our freedom fighters are
being attacked. I hope not.

Any help will be appreciated. Ie open other posts in
forums related to freedom of Video on the net etc.

Cheers.

Mikes Friend Doug

What do you do with a Rogue Fish Cop

Greg Gilbertson Rogue Fish Cop

Just some of the facts:

Some local mounties shot moose from a helicopter
and called a friend to go by ground and put a tag
on the animal. Greg overheard on the scanner and was
waiting at the animal. The police officer got no
ticket and Greg has since escaped a couple of impaired
driving charges. Many people know this story and
under oath. Won't lie for Greg I'm sure.
Someone is willing to go on camera with far more
details than I have.

A local told me of nursing a Golden Eagle back to
health. They called Greg and he picked up the bird.
They found out later the Eagle ended up getting stuffed.
I talked to the lady directly and will talk to her
again and get the details.

Another was during an court case over poached meat
an informant had provided video. During the case the
informant said he gave 2 videos to Greg. The judge
asked where the second video was. That video showed
the first one was obtained by break and enter. The
charges were thrown out and Greg got off scott free.
Who were the judge and prosecutor on this case? Who.

A town truck was stopped by Greg. He told them someone
had reported a set of horns in the back of a White Truck.
The truck had a town sticker on the side. Greg ordered
them to unload the truck to see if there were horns under.
They told him to stuff it and unload the truck himself
and reload if he found no horns.

He regularly stays at a house in Ocean Falls B.C. that
is owned by a number of local rich Trappers that have
never trapped a day in their lives. (I'll get names)

Greg got a trophy buck a few years back by bullying his
way in. The farmer could have got thousands of dollars
from biggame hunters. Story has it that it was before
daylight.

He has been caught creek fishing out of season and says
he is doing a study for the wildlife division. With a creel,
don't they use nets?

Greg is the head of the Fish and Game association. Who
what the dumb sob that nominated him?

Greg was heard on a local radio station saying "don't feed
that White Crow" I have been feeding and Videoing a European
Hooded Crow in my backyard. Geez Greg they sell bird feed?

Another fish and game worker said there is a file an inch
thick of complaints against Greg. A former supervisor of
Greg is now the Deputy Minister. That is why I want to
talk to the Minister of Sustainable Resources and the Deputy
Minister.

Ted Morton is Minister of Sustainable Resources
Cliff Henderson is the Deputy Minister

I will be visiting the Fish and Games this morning to find
out just what Mike is being charged with.

Things are not so bad for Mike.

Things are not so bad for Mike.

A ticket for the Weasel and no prohibition
from trapping next year. He was by the local
Sustainable Resources office yesterday and
that is the latest. I received an email this
morning from the Deputy Ministers office re
a meeting. We have declined it as there is
no longer any need.

But Mike isn't interested in reshowing
His trapline videos. I will post all
live animals on YouTube.com perminently.

I'll keep an eye on the forum for other outdoor
video postings. I love it. Take a camerman along
on your trapline. Be careful what you show.

I am digging through my old Video files and will
be posting a Video investigation of Corrupt Dutch
Officials that resulted in a number of Canadians
losing $$$. Too bad the video hosting wasn't there
3 years ago when this was shot. At the time we
were going to display it in storefronts near any
Dutch Embassies. To embarass them. Maybe now there
will be some action on this issue.

Your kind words and enjoyment of the videos made the
difference.

Thanks to you all

How My friend Norm Vandenhouten. got a measure of revenge.

The replay video should get into some catch and fast.
Checking the first time around was very good this season
even the 2nd and 3rd weren't bad. So much snow that it
was fun to jump into a deep spot or send the dog. I would
get right in front of brownie as he was trying to climb
back onto the road over the windrow of snow and push him
back in. He went woof and I let him up. I made a fine tackle
on him as he tried to run by. Too bad that wasn't on video.

I'll throw in a story or two just to keep things going.

How My friend Norm Vandenhouten. got a measure of revenge.

Norm fished lots at Slave Lake. Had a trailer for
the summer and must have come across this individual
a number of times. Anyway Norm went fishing with no
fishing gear whatsoever. He parked his boat close to
3 or 4 other Boats that were fishing. The Fish cop
pulls up and asks Norm for his Licence and he says
NO I won't show you my licence I'm not fishing. They
got into a heated discussion and the more Norm said
the larger the smiles on the other fishermen's faces
got. I know Norm's son has all the details. Norm passed
away 1 1/2 years back. It was good anyway. I may just
try that with my camera and some bait and be videoing
underwater and above. These guys are not our friends
and have never saved a fish. Respect is for friends only.
