Town considers Urban Archery Season

PULASKI — With populations exploding across Virginia, towns are becoming as vulnerable as any rural setting to damage caused by deer.
Pulaski is no exception.
That is why the town is considering whether to participate in a game department-approved Urban Archery Season program next fall.
Under the program, hunters may lawfully hunt antler-less deer with a bow and arrow within corporate limits of Virginia towns and cities from the first Saturday in September to the Friday prior to the first Saturday in October and from the Monday following the first Saturday in January through the last Saturday in March.
However, Town Manager John Hawley said application to participate in the program must be received by April 1, so it would be the 2009-2010 fiscal year before Pulaski could participate.
Along with Mayor Jeff Worrell, several councilmen expressed concern about the proposal.
They said they would like to see more information on it first.
Councilman Joel Burchett Jr. agreed.
He said he understands people are “baiting” deer in the Peppers Ferry-area, which is one of the problem areas in the town. “Maybe if they would stop, that would help,” he added.
