An Alberta outfitting company facing meat wastage charges in the Northwest Territories is denying any wrongdoing
Redstone Trophy Hunts is based in Cochrane, Alta. and offers sheep, moose and caribou hunts in the Sahtu.
Redstone's owners David Dutchik and his partner, Dallas Gertner, are charged with spoiling the meat of woodland caribou and moose.
But Dutchki says the company has been around for 25 years and they “just don’t do things like that.”
Court documents show the incident took place sometime between September 21 and 27 in 2012 while the group was hunting near Hay Hook Lake not far from Norman Wells.
Redstone keeps detailed summaries of their hunts on its website, and the one matching the dates above says “four helicopter moose hunters flew in.We had a great hunt and took some good old bulls. All four hunters took a bull and one ended up taking a caribou."
Hunters come from all over the world to hunt with Redstone.
According to its website, a trip like the one noted above would cost more than $15,000.
Dutchik says that he and Gertner are not guilty.
Both will be in court again to officially enter their plea on March 4th.
