Vt. hunters took 697 black bears this season

Posted on January 22, 2017 |
By Addison Independent



MONTPELIER — The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department reports that bear hunters in Vermont had a safe and successful hunting season in 2016.

This is higher than the past 10-year average of 520 bears being taken, but it is consistent with the goal of stabilizing the bear population to within 4,500 to 6,000 bears, according to Fish & Wildlife Department bear biologist Forrest Hammond.
