City-owned land could still be available to bow hunters under changes being considered by a Minot panel.

Jim Olson is live at city hall where a committee talked about the issue today.

The Nusiance Animal Committee met today and adopted some recommendations regarding efforts to control things like deer and turkeys roaming in the city.

The city council this month passed an ordinance that would outlaw hunting on city property.
But today, the committee members thought it best to let the police chief make the call on where hunters might be allowed to go after animals considered a nuisance.

(Chuck Emery, Committee Member) “I think we do need to have the city look at – you know – Rosehill Cemetery, probably not a good place to hunt – but I’m not aware of what other areas in town are city property.”

The committee also voted to suggest permits be issued to take up to 40 deer in the city limits during 2018.

Committee members suggested using deer-vehicle collision and nusinance call data to determine if the program is successful.

By the way – the chief of police reported that, in the last 20 months there had been 60 reports of deer-vehicle collisions within the city limits.
The group’s recommendations will go on to the full city council.
