Hunting and fishing opportunities in Vermont

Postby yellodog1 » Sun Nov 04, 2007 10:15 am

If the State of Vermont could do one or two things to increase hunting and fishing opportunities in the State what would it be?

Longer/Shorter seasons?
Bigger/Smaller bag limits?
Increase in types of game?
Etc. Etc.

give incentives to landowners to keep their land open to hunting.


freeze the prices of licenses for a couple of years.

Hot Dog!!!!! you hit this one right on the head. I live in central VT and mostly for waterfowl and turkey the land is hard to come by to hunt on. Deer is no problem cuz we own 500+ acers but very few trukeys and ducks on that.

How about taking the youth days and turning them into tennis days? A kid on the tennis court is a kid off the duck marsh and out of the trout stream. Also...ban all movies that make yuppies think they want to come up and take flyfishing and shotgun lessons at Orvis.
What? There's open water? Its not cold enough.

I hope magogwhacker is kidding.
With our declining numbers (sportsmen) we need the youth days to get and keep more kids interested.
It serves no purpose to dis the kids that can get out. If you don't like how they hunt or fish, offer them some friendly advice.

make crow season year round. then I can practice wingshooting more and I'll have a reason to be outside.
On the Ducks I'd have to say lower the daily limit and lengthen the season. I haven't shot my limit ever on ducks.
Geese I think should be open from August 25 through Oct 30, 5 a day, no possesion limit.
