If your name is drawn, a permit fee of $5.00 must be paid before an archery permit will be issued. Hunting is allowed in designated areas outside the fence on STC property (view respective map (PDF) showing designated area).  Firearm hunting is prohibited!  Download the city's Deer Management Policy (PDF).

Harvest Reports

All permit holders are required to complete a Harvest Report (PDF), whether successful or not. Failure to return the Harvest Information Sheet to STC will result in denied eligibility for any future airport archery hunt.
