Emerald Isle fails to block bow hunters

EMERALD ISLE, NC (AP) — The hunt for roaming deer continues in a North Carolina beach community.

WCTI-TV reports a Carteret County judge has refused to order a stop to the work of bow hunters in an Emerald Isle neighborhood at the tip of its barrier island.

Emerald Isle is trying to reduce a surging deer population. Dozens of neighbors went to court to stop hunters from patrolling their Lands End neighborhood as they have since the hunt began several weeks ago.

Some residents expressed concern that the 13 hunters will be too close to their children as they track deer from before dawn to 10 a.m.

The hunters are managed by the Emerald Isle Police Department. Lieutenant Jeff Waters says each hunter is trained and undergoes a background check.
