IN BRIEF

OKLAHOMA CITY

Agency votes on hunting

The Oklahoma City Game and Fish Commission voted Monday to table an agenda item that would have rescinded its previous recommendation that the city allow bow hunting for deer during deer season in October at Lake Stanley Draper and the Stinchcomb Wildlife Refuge. The recommendation has drawn opposition from police, property owners near the proposed hunting sites and some people who use the areas for recreation. The city Parks Commission recommended hunting not be allowed in those areas. The game commissioners' vote gives them time to reconsider the issue before deciding to send it on to the Oklahoma City Water Utilities Trust and city council.
