FERGUS FALLS, MN (AP) - City leaders in Fergus Falls have approved a limited archery hunt to control deer in the city limits.
 
City Council members voted unanimously Monday night to allow the hunt on some city-owned land.
 
KBRF-AM reports that no more than 10 hunters will be granted licenses. They'll have to pass a proficiency test and also be chosen by lottery.
 
The limited hunt follows a spate of car-deer accidents in the city in the past 18 months.
