AVON LAKE, Ohio
Officials in a Lake Erie community in northern Ohio have voted to allow residents to kill deer year round with archery equipment in an attempt to cull the herd.
The Chronicle-Telegram (http://bit.ly/1jLJcu3 ) reports that submitted applications must include maps detailing where hunting will occur, and neighbors of property where bow hunters plan to shoot must be notified. Hunters must be licensed by the state.
One resident who spoke out against the ordinance says she's concerned about the potential for accidents caused by hunters with inadequate skills or equipment.
