Fish and Wildlife reminding Vermont hunters to seek muzzle loading antlerless deer permits


MONTPELIER, Vermont — The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife is reminding hunters they can apply for muzzleloader season antlerless deer permits for use in the December season.

The muzzle loading season this year runs from Dec. 5-13.

Hunters can apply for the permits on the Fish and Wildlife website or they can get a paper application from licensing agents.

The state says 9,650 permits will be distributed in 10 of Vermont's 21 wildlife management units.

Wildlife Director Mark Scott says the number of antlerless permits was reduced from the 17,050 issued last year due to a decline in deer population caused by two severe winters.

The recommendation for antlerless deer hunting is based on population trend estimates, biological data, deer sighting rates reported by hunters, winter severity and other factors.
