limits By ABE LEVY StaffWriter The New Braunfels City Council will consider a plan to curb wayward deer roaming inside city limits includ ing bow hunting or trapping to relocate them at its next regular meeting Jan 13 city officials said City Manager Mike Shands said many residents have complained about a boom in the deer population whose presence in the northwest part of the city has caused auto accidents and unwanted eating of residential gardens and landscape plants Shands said the council will have three options appoint a committee to study the problem and make a recommendation if the situation is worthy of action authorize a special bow hunting excursion implement a trapping and relo cating process through the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Shands said he felt the council would likely appoint a committee to look into the situation because of the potential hazards associated with bow hunting inside city limits The trapping proposal would result in the same outcome as n special hunt since the deer would be taken to ranch es where the owners likely would hunt for them Deer would be attracted to feed under a net which would be released to trap the animals They would be

County with 180 Medi na with 121 and Bcxar with 113 as of Monday morning Ortly one well owner from Guudalupc County turned in an appli cation while 18 came from Hays County The Edwards Aquifer Act requires well owners to make a declaration of their historical pumping so that the authority can implement a permit sys tem for Edwards wells The system will then be used to lim it aquifer withdrawals across the region lo a yearly cap of acre feet and recover pumping Ices that will sup port the sixmonthold authority EAA officials said they suspect the total amount of water that well owners declare to exceed the acre feet cap which means the EAA board likely will have to reduce applicants claims Well owners must have made with drawals from the aquifer for at least three years between June I 1972
