The bow-and-arrow shooting of an 800-pound trophy elk in Paradise Hills on Lookout Mountain Sept. 20 may have outraged neighbors, but an investigation by the state Division of Wildlife determined the kill was legal.
“Technically, you can shoot a deer from your backyard,” said John Murphy, district wildlife officer for the DOW.
Paradise Hills consists of about 180 homes on approximately 1-acre lots. The shooting took place on private property north of the subdivision.
