Animal Nuisance Committee talk archery

MINOT, N.D. - A framework for hunting in Minot is in the making, that's according to members of the city's nuisance animal committee.

The committee passed a motion Wednesday that would require property owner's permission to hunt within city limits.

The city would require an application process for hunters, requesting approval to hunt on a specific piece of land.

Committee members debated whether a hunter should be required to pass a written test before being approved to hunt.

This motion was not passed by the committee.

"Permission to hunt on city owned land may be provided at the discretion of chief of police" was the motion passed by committee chair," said Josh Wolsky.

At this month's city council meeting the council voted not to allow archery hunting on city owned land.

The full city council will take up their recommendations at its meeting next month.
