Aberdeen City Manager Lynn Lander is drafting an ordinance that would allow for controlled deer hunting within city limits to deal with problem animals.
Lander will present the ordinance to the City Council later for consideration.
Residents in parts of Aberdeen say deer are causing hundreds of dollars in property damage. Bill Bowen appeared before the City Council on Monday and asked the group to consider limited hunting.
Other South Dakota cities including Pierre, Sioux Falls and Rapid City have limited hunts to manage urban deer populations.
