Urban deer hunting debated in Cedar Rapids

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)--Supporters of the yearly city deer hunt in Cedar Rapids want the event to be expanded to city-owned land.

The bow hunt is usually held on private property and some say it's led to fewer deer-related car accidents in Cedar Rapids.

An official with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources says deer herds would be better managed, if certain public areas were opened to hunters.
