Muzzleloader permits available on state website

MONTPELIER — Vermont Fish and Wildlife’s board met on May 22 and set antlerless deer permit numbers for the fall deer hunting seasons.
Hunting for antlerless deer will be allowed statewide during the Oct. 5-Nov. 1 and Dec. 7-15 archery season. One deer of either sex would be allowed for youths during the November 9-10 youth weekend hunt.
Vermont’s muzzleloader season antlerless deer permit applications are now available on Vermont Fish & Wildlife’s website vtfishandwildlife.com. A link to the information and online applications is on the home page.
Landowners who post their land may not apply for a landowner priority muzzleloader antlerless deer permit. They are eligible to apply in the regular lottery for an antlerless deer permit.
“The winter of 2019 was severe in central and northeastern Vermont, and in response the permit allocation is 51 percent less than 2018 in those areas,” said Nick Fortin, deer project leader for the Fish and Wildlife Department.  “Elsewhere, the permit allocation is similar to 2018 as little change is expected in the deer population in those areas.”
The deadline to apply for a muzzleloader antlerless deer permit is Aug. 14.
