Deer Hunting Season within Town Limits
Urban Archery Season
Archery only: Jan. 12 – Feb. 17, 2019
Information for Hunters
The intention of the Urban Archery Season is to enable cities, towns and villages to reduce urban deer populations through increased hunter opportunity. Hunting during the Urban Archery Season is allowed ONLY in participating municipalities.
Each city, town and village will decide if hunting is allowed on public property and restrictions, if any, for hunting on private property within the city, town and village limits.
Hunters wishing to hunt in Elkin during the Urban Archery Season should view the link below, for a map showing lawful areas to hunt and additional information on specific restrictions that may apply to each area.
The Urban Archery Season does not obligate private landowners to allow hunting on their property, nor does it eliminate the ethical requirement for obtaining permission from the landowner before hunting. Hunters are legally required to obtain written permission to hunt on posted property.
All Urban Archery hunting within the town is conducted on a landowner permission or land ownership basis.For a map of Elkin's Urban Archery locations permitted within the town, please click here.
