This is going to sound weird but I am going to ask. I live in a planned subdivision. The backyard is a solid .65 - .70 acres (rather large for a backyard). We very commonly have rabits, the occasional gopher, and also once anda while, a deer. Am I allowed to hunt any of these creatures since I am 1) not using a firearm and 2) since it is private land?

p.s. Or do we just have to trap the animals (minus the deer) to get rid of them ?

tiffinsmallies is correct, you have to check your local ordinances. Many towns have laws that don't don't allow the discharge of weapons, not just firearms.

I have considered this many times but what keeps me from launching an arrow is the chance of the deer going up into someones yard and laying down. Most areas do have urban tags but would check with the city as everyone is saying. Good Luck.

The real problem here is if you get lucky and stick one in the pumping station and it runs to the neighbor you MUST get permission to retrieve ur deer
