Archery Hunt To Thin Deer In Northeast Sioux Falls

News

If you’ve ever wanted to try bow hunting, but never had the chance, the city of Sioux Falls has a unique opportunity.

This fall, the city is teaming up with Archery Outfitters to help thin the deer herd between Interstate 229 and Rice Street.  They are opening up 30 acres of wooded land near the Big Sioux River for this year’s hunt.

Animal Control along with Game, Fish and Parks want 8 to 10 hunters, with preference given to youth, women and veterans.  Each hunter will be teamed up with a mentor to help them out.  Animal Control hope the hunters will bag 10 deer this year.

“In this situation with more inexperienced hunters and know that we might not get that lucky. So anything that we can remove is better than those deer getting hit on the interstate or on Rice Street,” Julie DeJong with Sioux Falls Animal Control said.

Hunters will have to get a state and city deer hunting license.
