    GASTONIA, N.C. - City leaders in Gastonia on Tuesday night decided to hold off on a proposal to allow bow hunting.
    Council listened to residents argue for and against allowing bow hunting within city limits.

    The goal of the proposal was to target the growing population of deer in Gastonia.

    After hearing concerns, council withdrew the motion to adopt the resolution saying they want more time to study it.     
    The city attorney told Eyewitness News there would be some restrictions including that people can only hunt on a tract of land at least five acres wide and no hunting around a school, playground or a house.
