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.
