DALLAS (AP) — Bow hunters in three North Texas counties are getting to do something they haven’t been able to do in 36 years — hunt deer.

The Dallas Morning News reports state officials on Saturday reopened the suburban counties of Collin, Dallas and Rockwall to bow hunting.

While state wildlife biologists warn that none of the three counties are reporting large deer populations, hunters say they are not deterred.

Bud Murphy, president of the Traditional Bowhunters of Texas, says his group has kept watch on some of the deer in the area through trail cams “and there are some very nice animals out there.”

The state had stopped hunting in the three counties because of dwindling local deer populations due to development.

The bow hunting season runs until Nov. 2.
