Muzzleloader Antlerless Deer Permit Winners Announced
WATERBURY, VT – The winners of Vermont’s muzzleloader season antlerless deer permits are listed on the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department’s website (vtfishandwildlife.com).
“Hunters who applied for muzzleloader antlerless deer permits and will be participating in the October 2-24 and December 4-12 archery season may want to check our website to find out if they will be receiving a muzzleloader season antlerless permit,” said Fish and Wildlife’s Chief of Operations Thomas Decker. “Knowing the answer will help them in planning their hunt.”
“More than 6,000 muzzleloader antlerless deer permits are still available across nine Wildlife Management Units,” said Decker. “They are being made available in order to meet deer management goals and keep the deer population in balance with its habitat.”
Hunters are able to purchase these un-allocated permits until they are gone on a first-come-first serve basis on the department’s website (www.vtfishandwildlife.com) at $10 for residents and $25 for nonresidents.
“Hunters who do not have internet access at home may want to use a friend’s computer or go to a nearby library to get online,” said Decker. “We also will provide internet access here at our Waterbury office for those who want to travel to apply in person. If you must travel to Waterbury, you should call Fish and Wildlife at 802-241-1271 to verify which, if any, permits are still available.”
Antlerless deer permits were still available in the following WMUs on September 24: A-B-F1-F2-K1-K2-M1-M2-N.
