Carroll County Attorney John Werden has been charged with hunting geese during the offseason.

An officer from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources issued the charge at Artesian Lake, a county-owned public hunting area south of Lanesboro, according to a ticket filed Friday in Carroll County Magistrate Court.

Joseph Tilley, 61, and his son, Matthew, 31, of Carroll were with Werden and also were charged.

Werden, 50, said he is innocent and that other members of his hunting party shot the geese.

Goose hunting season in Iowa's southern zone, which includes Carroll County, is from Sept. 30 to Oct. 8, and Oct. 21 to Jan. 9.

Offseason hunting of geese carries a $50 fine.

The Iowa attorney general's office will likely prosecute the case.

Werden, a Republican, is unopposed in his bid for a third term as county attorney
