MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) - A charter operator has been charged with hunting waterfowl from a moving, motor-powered boat on Lake Huron and taking more than the allowed daily limit of six ducks.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says Wednesday that 30-year-old Terry Jay Wilson of Marquette was arrested after a 2-year undercover investigation.

Wilson was arraigned Jan. 25. Pretrial conferences are scheduled next month in Arenac and Mackinac counties.

Authorities say the charges also include operating an unlicensed and uninspected charter boat. DNR First Lt. Dave Shaw says officers posed as charter customers on the boat.

Wilson faces fines, a year in jail, loss of his boat and revocation of his Michigan hunting license.

The Associated Press was unable to find a phone listing Wednesday for Wilson.
