Archers Will Have Access to Deer in Sioux Falls
Last year 70 access permits were given to archers, and 21 deer were killed in a northeastern part of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Part of the area open was flooded though, so this year the area is being moved and extended a zone. There are about 300-400 deer wthin city limits that need thinning out. Car-deer accidents have been increasing as hunters have pushed deer into city limits. This year there will be 77 access permits available.
The season runs from September 28th to January 3rd. Applications will be accepted until September 2nd. Each hunter must have a statewide antlerless archery license before signing up and must attend one of two orientation meetings at the Outdoor Campus in Sioux Falls. The hunters have two weeks in a specified area to take a deer. From ArgusLeader.com.
