Limited deer hunt returning to northern Kentucky

FORT THOMAS, Ky. (AP) - The deer aren't the only ones who are apprehensive about the opening of bow hunting season in northern Kentucky.

The limited hunt for deer started Nov. 1 in Fort Thomas and runs through Nov. 21, and will start again Jan. 1 and continue through Jan. 19.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports that some residents are against the idea of allowing hunting in the suburban town and have posted warning signs about hunters in the area. Others are glad hunters will have the chance to thin the area's herd.

Hunters reported 42 killed after last season's hunt, spread over December and January.

Resident Tom Caradonio says there were so many deer in his neighborhood that people crept down the street in their cars, afraid that they would hit one.
