Many municipalities in North Carolina and other states have turned to Bowhunting to manage a growing population of whitetail deer. The NC Wildlife Resources Commission supports urban archery hunting to help manage deer populations in and around towns and cities of ALL sizes. About 50 cities have opted into the NCWRC's "Urban Archery Season" which is open from mid-January to mid-February. The latest large city to allow bowhunting was Durham, along with Chapel Hill , Pittsboro, Concord and more. Many others allow Bowhunting during the regular deer season which runs from the Saturday after Labor Day until January 1st. In the 40+ years that the NCWRC has kept stats on hunting accidents, there has NEVER been a shooting incident involving injurt with a bow & arrow. (although a hunter was shot and killed last year with a crossbow, which is NOT considered to be the same as a conventional or traditional bow & arrow.) Vehicle collisions with deer have been reduced and depredation to property has declined too!
