MUSCATINE, Iowa The Muscatine City Council says bow hunters can begin hunting in the city limits to reduce the city's deer population beginning October first.

The council voted six-to-one to approve the hunt. Officials say the hunt should only be done on private property with the property owner's permission.

Officials hope the hunt will reduce the deer population in the city limits by 20 percent.

Hunters will have to take a proficiency test before they can participate. They will be allowed to keep the deer they kill but officials say they were still working to determine how many deer each hunter could take.

Officials say a survey last year showed there were about 60 deer in the city limits and another 180 nearby.
