To curb the growing problem of deer overpopulation in Galax, city council approved an urban archery program on Feb. 12.
The proposal was brought to council by City Manager Keith Barker. He explained that the program, offered through the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, would allow bow hunting in the city. “This is a practice that has never been allowed in this area before,” he said.
