Three people were recently charged with night hunting by State Game Warden Luke Lemley.

The three - one from Decatur and two from Courtland - were charged with hunting deer at night, hunting from a public road, "and a few other charges."

Lemley caught them on the west side of Jackson County. Assistance was provided by the Jackson County Sheriff's Department and Scottsboro Police Department.

Jackson is one of the largest counties in North Alabama. Officer Lemley is the only game warden assigned as a field officer in Jackson County. Lt. Jim Kirkland assists in the field, but is also a supervisor for six counties including Jackson. Assistance is also provided by the Alabama Marine Police, Jackson County Sheriff's Department and local police departments.

Violations can be reported by calling the Department of Conservation's Operation Game Watch at 1-800-272- GAME (4263) or the District II Enforcement Officer at 256-435-1642.

The three were apprehended on December 31, 2007. The charges are misdemeanors.
