Three duck hunters have been banned for three years from entering properties owned or managed by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. The ban comes after 49-year-old Michael Kortkamp, 21-year-old Robert Kortkamp, and 20-year-old Andrew Lawrence pleaded guilty to stealing a bicycle and a duck decoy cart from the Carlyle Lake State Park.


The Kortkamps were also fined $295 apiece and ordered to pay $795.75 apiece in court costs. Lawrence was fined $90 and ordered to pay $595.50 in court costs. According to IDNR the bicycle and decoy cart were returned to their rightful owners.
