Cedar Rapids preparing again for urban deer hunt

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — The eastern Iowa city of Cedar Rapids is preparing for its annual Urban Deer Hunt, which allows some deer hunting inside city limits.

This year’s season opens on Sept. 14 and runs through Jan. 10. Hunting is limited to those using archery equipment, and participants must complete a bow hunter’s class and attend an urban deer hunting rules and regulations class. Participants must also pass an annual proficiency test and complete a special application before being issued a permit for the urban hunt. Participants must also provide a completed land owners permission form.

The intent of the urban hunt is to thin populations of deer living within city limits and residential areas.
