ADDISON COUNTY — More than 6,000 hunters applied for a Vermont moose-hunting permit this year. Of those 6,212 hopefuls, 12 Addison County residents can now get ready for what the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife calls “the hunt of a lifetime.”

This month, their names were among the 160 drawn in the department’s lottery awarding Vermont’s 25 archery season and 135 rifle season permits. In a second round, an additional five permits were awarded in VFW’s annual moose permit auction, which raises funds for environmental education.

Posted on August 22, 2016 |
By Don Rendell



This week’s writer is Don Rendell, President and CEO, Vermont Gas Systems.

Vermont Gas’s Addison County customer expansion project has received its fair share of news coverage over the past few years and rightfully so: this has been a complex and, at times, very challenging project.
