For the 4th season, the City of Sheridan Police Department and the Game and Fish Regional Office in Sheridan have teamed up to allow archery hunting in many areas of the Sheridan City limits and surrounding areas. Sheridan Media's Mary Jo Johnson discussed the project with its coordinator, Sgt. Travis Koltiska of the Sheridan PD.
When first implemented, the archery hunting in city limits attracted about sixty hunters, and those numbers have steadily increased since then. Sgt. Koltiska reminds interested hunters what they need to do.
He says Sheridan's city limits rest in Hunt Area 24, and a hunter can obtain up to an additional four doe-fawn tags.
Also, we reported last week that the Buffalo Police Department is harvesting deer in their city limits and offering the meat to residents. I asked Sgt. Koltiska if Sheridan would be interested in a similar program.
I also asked Sgt. Koltiska his opinion about this week's poll question at sheridanmedia.com regarding “whatever means possible” to reduce the deer population within the city limits.
As for the current – and legal – archery season, we have a link to the Archery Season 2010 map here: http://www.city-sheridan-wy.com/...
