TOMAHAWK – The City of Tomahawk Common Council, during its meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 6, approved a resolution designating parts of the city as “animal nuisance areas” and allowing bow and arrow hunting for deer and bear in those areas.
The hunt will coincide with the upcoming archery season, which starts on Saturday, Sept. 17 and ends on Jan. 8, 2023.
The archery hunts within city limits have taken place in previous years. It was noted during the meeting that six deer were taken in last year’s hunt.
The resolution, which is mostly identical to the one the council approved last year, states the city has received “numerous complaints of deer and bear damage.”
Prior to the vote, the council held a public hearing, during which no members of the public commented on the hunt.
Those participating in the hunt must first register with the city.
All Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) rules and regulations apply to the archery hunts within city limits.
