Hunting to control the deer population in Fayetteville begins Tuesday.
The initial controversial plan was changed from volunteer hunters with bows and arrows to trained marksmen from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The window for hunting is March 1 to March 31. Shooting will happen only on village-owned property, like public parks. The park’s dusk closing time will be enforced.
The village’s goal is to have 8 or less deer per square mile.
