This is the last year that collectors, hunters and other conservationists will be able to obtain a Vermont "duck stamp" with an image of a waterfowl species on it. Vermont's highly successful Migratory Waterfowl Stamp Program has raised more than $3.5 million and helped conserve almost 8,500 acres of wildlife habitat, but beginning in 2011, the stamp will be in the form of a validation sticker, similar to current hunting and fishing license validation stickers.
The change is being made to facilitate the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department's move toward electronic licensing and to reduce costs associated with administering the duck stamp and print program, which will allow more duck stamp monies to be used on wetland conservation projects in future years. The 2010 stamp features a dramatic photo of a drake wood duck and represents the last chance for conservation-minded collectors to purchase state duck stamps.
