Deer Management
Ordinances Adopted to Mitigate Deer Problem
In October 2011, the City Council adopted an ordinance to allow trained archery hunters to hunt deer within city limits when a permit is obtained through the Creve Coeur Police Department. An ordinance prohibiting the feeding of deer was also adopted. Both ordinances can be viewed in their entirety below.


Obtaining Permission to Bow Hunt
The Creve Coeur Police Department is responsible for maintaining all records, permits and files for the Ordinance allowing bow hunting for deer. 

Effective November 1, 2011, bow hunting is allowed in the city limits of Creve Coeur provided hunters have successfully completed the required application process.

2014 Deer Bow Hunting Season
The bow hunting season is September 15, 2014 through November 14, 2014 and November 26 through continues through January 15, 2015.

To obtain permission to hunt, property owners must satisfy a number of requirements including but not limited to completing a Notification of Intent to Hunt form from the Police Department, providing evidence of liability insurance in an amount of at least $2,000,000 per occurrence, providing a certificate of completion of an approved archery hunter safety course, and notifying in writing all contiguous properties of the planned hunt.

Additionally, the ordinance does not authorize hunts on tracts of land under one acre unless adjacent property owners combine their parcels to form at least one acre. All hunters are required to hunt from an elevated position at least 10 feet high that faces the interior of the property, and arrows must be shot at a downward angle to prevent any arrow from landing closer than 25 feet from a side or rear property line and 75 feet from a front yard property line. It is unlawful for a person to discharge an archery device within 30 yards of any dwelling or vehicle without express authority. Likewise, it is unlawful for any archery device to be discharged within 150 yards of a church, school, or playground.
