VERMONT — One of our native wildlife species historically played an important role on Thanksgiving Day. North America’s native wild turkeys were the ancestors of the Thanksgiving turkey on our dinner table.

Originally found only in the wild, turkeys now exist as meat-producing domesticated derivatives — the broad-breasted white, broad-breasted bronze, white Holland, Bourbon red, and a host of other breeds — all of them descended from our native wild turkey.

By Addison Independent



RUTLAND — The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is reminding hunters who harvest a deer during the November rifle season to provide a middle incisor tooth from the deer so its age can be determined.

Hunters who get a deer during the Nov. 14-29 rifle season are asked to provide an incisor tooth from their deer when they go to a reporting station.

Bobcat populations are rising in Vermont, so watch for tracks in snow

Posted on November 23, 2015 |
By Meghan McCarthy McPhaul



The Outside Story - Bobcats.jpg

The distinctively feline tracks through the snow in our woods last winter intrigued me. They would follow the narrow ski trail a ways, then meander into the trees or, sometimes, seem to disappear altogether. There was no way, I thought, a house kitty was so far from home in the deep of winter, and besides, these tracks were a bit large for your average cat.

Then it hit me: These were bobcat tracks.

Hunting mushrooms: The old not bold approach

Posted on November 16, 2015 |
By Carolyn Lorie



The Outside Story.jpg

When you stumble across something purple in the forest, it’s hard not to stop in your tracks. At least it was for me on a recent hike in Thetford, when I came across three purple mushrooms. They stood about four inches tall, with saucer tops that were nearly black in the center and ringed in a rich eggplant-purple. I was captivated. I was also clueless, as I had no idea what I was looking at. I have long regarded mushrooms the way I do yellow-colored warblers and ferns — far too many and too confusing to distinguish one from another.
