Jim Antippas, vice president of the UBC, says that bowhunters are allowed within city limits but must have written permission from the landowner. The UBC list, though, saves the hunter the trouble of going door-to-door to seek permission. There's no guarantee that a hunter will be called, but the odds of getting to hunt the suburbs is increased. Getting on the list To become a UBC-certified hunter, you need to pass not only the state-required bowhunting safety class, but also the UBC Advanced Bowhunter Course. The UBC course is more in-depth than the state's and addresses issues hunters often face in suburban areas. The cost of the class is $20, which includes a one-year membership to the UBC.
