The city of Minot is a step closer to issuing bow hunting permits in some parts of the city.

A committee recommended approving the Wildlife Management Program that would, among other things, allow the police department to issue hunting permits within city limits.

The hunter would also need a state license and complete an archery safety program.

One person spoke against the plan, saying there were too many safety concerns.

“I just really question the safety and I think that real attention should be paid to the specifics.”
(Shaun Sipma, Minot Alderman) “I’m comfortable with what we see here. As stated before, we haven’t had issues, even though it was allowed to hunt in Minot prior. This actually just does give it a greater amount of control.”

The full city council will vote on the issue Monday.
If approved, the Wildlife Management Program would go into effect in time for the fall hunting seasons.
