AVON LAKE, Ohio (AP) - Officials in a Lake Erie community in northern Ohio have voted to allow residents to kill deer year round with archery equipment in an attempt to cull the herd.

Thanks to an ordinance passed by city council Monday night, Avon Lake residents will be able to help manage the white-tailed deer populations with bows and arrows, as long as they get the proper paperwork from the city.

The (Elyria) Chronicle-Telegram (https://bit.ly/1jLJcu3 ) reports that submitted applications must include maps detailing where hunting will occur, and neighbors of property where bow hunters plan to shoot must be notified. Hunters must be licensed by the state.

One resident who spoke out against the ordinance says she’s concerned about the potential for accidents caused by hunters with inadequate skills or equipment.
