Fish River residents say duck hunters shot towards their homes
BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WPMI) —
Baldwin County Sheriff’s investigators acknowledge they looked into who might have fired shots near occupied homes on Fish River Monday evening. After reviewing the case deputies have turned the investigation over to Alabama Marine Police and conservation officials.
Neighbors living near the boat launch on Honey Road took to Facebook saying they witnessed three male subjects shooting at ducks near their homes.
The three men were in a camouflaged aluminum boat. Neighbors say shots were fired directly towards homes in the area. Conservation and Marine Police are not commenting.
Alabama law allows for hunting, including wild ducks, near homes as long as hunters keep a distance of a least 100 yards from any dwelling and shots are not aimed in the direction of the home. Hunters must have a license and the vessel cannot be in motion.
