The City of Hallock, Minnesota's issuing more instructions about a special
deer hunt in city limits this September.
Police Chief Mike Docken tells KXPO it'll be a bow hunt,
September 14th through December 31st. It's a special hunt run by Hallock. Antler-less
deer only, limit of 30. Docken says the special hunt will follow the Minnesota Department
of Natural Resources' rules for bow-hunting. It's available for Minnesota residents and
Docken says because it's a Hallock special hunt, another requirement will be
hunters must be a minimum of 18-years-old. The hunting area will be near the Two Rivers
Docken says the deer are a problem and a danger and the special hunt is necessary.
Docken says many deer live on the outskirts of Hallock. They come into town and have
less fear because they know residents won't/can't chase them or kill them. Those
deer actually have more fear in the wild because they're cognizant of increased danger
there, as opposed to being in town.
Docken says they look for food in town, trees, garden produce, flowers, anything.
He says 15 people will be selected by drawing and 15 landowners will be authorized
to hunt within Hallock's city limits. Those 30 bow hunters are authorized to buy a special
deer hunt permit and must get written permission from the specific landowner to hunt on
The application is August first through the 30th.
