Martinsville city council may have struck a nerve with archers when they voted last week to allow bow-and-arrow hunting within city limit. Limited hunting has been allowed, but was prohibited within one hundred feet of homes, which some council members said made the urban archery season useless because homes are so close together. The special hunting season will run from October to March.
