MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A bar in the northwest North Dakota town of Foxholm has received permission to continue a topless dancer tradition the opening weekend of deer hunting season.

The Minot Daily News reports that the Ward County Commission on Thursday voted 3-2 to grant a permit to the Hunter's Den, which has hosted the exotic dancing event the past 15 years.

An earlier vote had ended in a 2-2 tie with one commissioner absent.

No one had ever questioned the Hunter's Den event, but this year, owner Grace Delling approached the county commission about a permit. Her reason was that the commission in September had denied a similar permit for potential new owners of a restaurant near Burlington after some people in the area objected.
