Bow hunting within Watford City begins

September 1 marked the beginning of hunting season, and following the success of last year’s hunt, Watford City is once again hosting a bow hunt within city limits to curb the ever-growing deer population that calls the city home.
Watford City is one of five North Dakota cities that have a regulated bow hunt within city limits. The other cities are Fargo, Minot, Bismarck/Mandan, and Portland. These cities all work closely with the North Dakota Game and Fish Department (NDGF) in an effort to keep local deer populations healthy.
