(LANSING, Mich.) -- Two Kawkawlin men have been ordered to pay over $4,000 each in restitution and have been sentenced to five days in jail for being over the bag limit for redhead ducks.
Travis Vennix, 22, and Timothy Diehl, 22, both Kawkawlin, Mich., admitted to shooting 20 redhead ducks while hunting in October, over the bag limit of two per hunter, according to conservation officers with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
The pair was waterfowl hunting on Oct. 13 when they encountered a DNR conservation officer who was checking waterfowl hunters at the Pine River boating access site in Arenac County.
Authorities noted they were acting nervous, and discovered the following day the two hid additional ducks underneath a boat dock.
In addition to their fines, restitution and jail time, both had their hunting privileges for the remainder of 2014 revoked, along with the next three calendar years.
