The Bismarck Police Department announces that it is conducting the annual bow hunting program. This occurs in the area around the Water Treatment Facility, archery range, Horse arena and the Airport. The season runs from August 30 at 1200 to Jan 31, 2014 at sundown.
During that time there will be hunters in the area, in an effort to reduce the city’s deer population. Citizens are asked not to allow their dogs to run loose in the area of the walking path along Burleigh Ave. and in the area of the Waste Water Treatment facility, archery range and the horse areas. This includes the tree areas and the open fields as they may run into an area where active hunting is occurring.
Dogs are prohibited from molesting or chasing wild game and are required to be leashed in city limits.
Residents in these areas may also notice hunters during this time period. If you have any questions please contact Melisa Hilsendeger at the Bismarck Police Department, Animal Control, 355-1910.
