Vermont muzzleloader antlerless deer permits online

September 29, 2013

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The winners of muzzleloader antlerless deer hunting permits are available on the website of the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The Fish and Wildlife Board approved the number of December muzzleloader permits at 14,400 for 20 of the state's 24 Wildlife Management Units.

The taking of antlerless deer with archery equipment is permitted in all management units except WMU-E, which is mostly in Essex County.

Youth hunters are allowed to harvest any deer anywhere during the youth deer hunting weekend on Nov. 9 and 10.

Biologists expect hunters to take almost 6,000 antlerless deer during the muzzleloader, youth and archery seasons.
