Warsaw Declares War on White Tail

The city of Warsaw has declared war on white tail.

Deer hunting is taking place inside the city limits.

The move comes in a city that had 93-car/deer accidents last year alone.

On Monday of this week, bow hunters took to three designated areas on the northeast side.

By Friday they had bagged six deer.

The fact that the city decided to allow deer hunting speaks volumes about the volume of deer there.

On Friday, Newscenter 16 had no problem taping a half dozen deer in broad daylight.

Some residents say it's not uncommon to find herds of 20-to-30 deer in their front yards at sunrise and sunset.

According to Springhill resident Harry Schorner, “they are nice to see but it’s kind of aggrivating. You have them all the time in your front yard, your back yard, sleeping in your yard.”

When it comes to safety, the city feels it has all the “angles” covered.

For instance, all hunting must take place from a tree stand, and the hunter hovering above can only shoot deer that are 20-yards or closer.

All hunters chosen to take part went through a thorough pre-screening process.

The hunting will break for the holiday,
And resume next Tuesday.
