Michigan man faces 26 charges tied to illegal waterfowl hunting MARQUETTE COUNTY, MI -- A Marquette man is facing 26 charges amid accusations he conducted illegal waterfowl-hunting charters and encouraged clients to take more ducks than allowed. Terry Jay Wilson, 30, has been arraigned on 17 counts in Arenac County and nine counts in Mackinac County for operating an unlicensed charter boat, hunting waterfowl from a boat under power, and exceeding waterfowl bag limits. Charges were filed following a two-year undercover investigation by state Department of Natural Resources detectives. The detectives, with the DNR Law Enforcement Division Special Investigative Unit, alleged Wilson operated charters for a fee in Saginaw Bay and St. Martin's Bay in Lake Huron. He is accused of shooting waterfowl while the boat was under power and encouraging clients to do the same. Authorities also say he also encourage clients to harvest waterfowl beyond legal bag limits. DNR detectives say Wilson also operated the boat in hazardous conditions, including subfreezing temperatures and when waves exceeded seven foot. Police said they seized a 25-foot Duckwater boat from a residence near Munising as part of the investigation. Wilson is scheduled for court hearings on March 9 and March 21 in the two counties.
