EUREKA, Mo. (KSDK) - For the last 20 years, Six Flags employees have enjoyed a rare privilege of being able to hunt the deer located in the wooded areas near the park.
This year's hunting sessions will differ from years past, though; Six Flags has informed its employees that each of them must gain approval from the City of Eureka before they embark on a hunt.
The hunting begins in October to coincide with the start of deer hunting and bow hunting season, but will only take place when the park is not open for business. The hunting takes place in the wooded area east of the park to the Lion's Choice restaurant located on the outer road.
As a reminder, bow hunting in this area is open to employees only with permission from the city.
