Three individuals were ticketed for killing 35 Redhead ducks and possibly injuring others, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

Two off-duty environmental conservation officers saw the hunters shooting the ducks on Jan. 15 on a part of Owasco Lake in Scipio.

The DEC ticketed the three for taking over the aggregate limit of ducks and taking over the daily limit of Redhead ducks. One hunter was also charged with possession of a loaded firearm in a motor vehicle, hunting without a license and not participating in the Harvest Information Program.
