Posted: September 25, 2013 - 4:01am

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A few lucky hunters will soon get to draw their bows near the Pittsburgh International Airport.

The Allegheny County Airport Authority says Tuesday that it will conduct a random drawing at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 26 to select 157 winners of an archery-only hunting permit. About 2,900 people applied for the permits, which are designed to thin the deer population.

The hunting will only be allowed on about 2,300 acres of airport property that are far from the terminal.

Hunting will be limited to archery only from Oct. 5 through Jan. 11.
