A Dawson City man has been fined $6,500 after pleading guilty to four charges under the wildlife act.
Micah Olesh admitted to hunting by aircraft, failing to make reasonable effort to kill wounded wildlife, waste of meat, and using a vehicle to transport wildlife in a closed game management subzone.
The bison hunt took place in November 2011 near Haines Junction.
Along with the fine, territorial court judge Peter Chisholm banned Olesh from hunting for five years and ordered he complete the Hunter Education and Ethics Development (HEED) course.
All seized parts of the bison were forfeited.
The sentence was based on a joint recommendation from both sides, according to Environment Yukon.
