7 in hunting group losing hunting privileges
Officials say seven members of a hunting group from Mississippi and
Alabama have lost their hunting privileges for a year after shooting too
many ducks during a trip to the Devils Lake area.
Game warden Bruce Burkett said wardens doing a routine check saw hunters
in the group shoot more than their daily limit of five ducks each in a
marsh near Devils Lake in October.
He said a search found the group had a total of 123 ducks, or 53 more
than their legal limit.
Along with the loss of their hunting privileges, the men each were
handed fines ranging from $600 to $1,000, and were ordered to pay $225
in court costs and $300 restitution.
