(A) Bow hunting may be allowed on any property located within predominately agricultural areas of the city as designated annually by City Council resolution (hereafter rural property) in accordance with all IDNR regulations and without obtaining an urban antlerless deer license or incentive license, subject to the restrictions listed in this section.
(B) A bow hunter is not required to complete the city permission form nor comply with the annual proficiency or safety education course required for the city’s special bow hunt program to hunt on rural property unless the bow hunter desires to have any anterless deer taken on a rural property to be included in the season harvest requirement for a possible incentive license in the following season, if any are awarded; and is not required to case the bow and arrows while traveling to hunting sites located on rural property.
(C) A bow hunter may obtain an “any sex license” from the IDNR to hunt on rural property, but the tag shall not be used to take any antlered deer within the boundaries designated by the city for the special bow hunt. This restriction shall not apply to an incentive license awarded for the prior season under the city’s special bow hunt program.
