Emerald Isle wants permission to take aim at a growing population of deer in the area.
Emerald Isle has applied for a state permit that would allow bow hunting at a local park and authorized private properties.
This comes after residents there have experienced a population boom in deer this year.
In the past, the town has used police officers to hunt deer.
Deer meat from the new bow hunting effort would be donated to the organization "Feed the Hungry."
