The Mexico City Council approved an Ordinance at their November 10, 2008 meeting allowing deer bow hunting within the city limits. The parks and cemeteries, along with homeowners have experienced damage to tree plantings along with increased automobile collisions.
The ordinance permits deer bow hunting on privately owned tracts of land that are 3 acres or larger with only 1 dwelling unit per acre. Hunters must have all required state permits and abide by all state hunting regulations and seasons. The hunter must also register at the city and carry written permission from the property owner when required.
Additional requirements that must be met include that the hunter must be 21 years of age and must be elevated a minimum of 10 feet from the ground when discharging a bow in the act of hunting. Hunters will not be able to discharge a bow and arrow within 180 feet of a dwelling, a building or structure used for the assembly of people, a street, a highway, park or property line.
