No complaints on in-city hunt to date [UPDATED]Published 1:49pm Monday, October 8, 2012 Updated 3:52pm Monday, October 8, 2012
When it comes to Fergus Falls’ first in-city deer hunt, there’s little to report — and even less being reported. Police Chief Kile Bergren said he has received no calls, negative or positive, about bow hunters in the approved hunting areas around the city since the hunt began last month.
Part of that may be because the deer archery season lasts so long, coming to a close at the end of the year.
“I don’t think some of them will go out until late, after the rifle season is over (in November),” Bergren said.
Bergren is considering sending the 10 approved hunters a form around mid-season, asking them about their success and about what could be done to improve the hunt in the future.
There have been no complaints about the hunting either, possibly because the areas people are hunting in are remote.
Bergren said there was one call about people hunting in an unapproved area, but police found that it was just a couple of people taking pictures of wildlife.
