Bow hunting not allowed within Minot city limits

The Minot City Council has approved an ordinance to not allow bow hunting within the City of Minot.

The ordinance was originally meant to not allow bow hunting within Rosehill cemetery, however alderman Mark Jantzer made the motion change it to within city limits.

Alderman Josh Wolsky who is also the head of the nusiance animals ad hoc committee says that this will be an ongoing issue going forward.

“I think the intent of this is to get something in the books right now with the full intent that the committee may us bring something back that may provide some compromise solution or alternative pathways towards dealing with our nusiance animals so this is far from a settled issue I would say in the terms I am looking at it but I will say yes tonight,” said Wolsky.
