Vermont Rifle Update ?

Hi,
I have read numerous reports from VT Fish and Game as to the improved Heard numbers this year. Was wondering if any VT hunters have seen a difference. We are headed up Wednesday for the first time in 4 yrs to give it a shot again. Used to see good numbers but the last few that we went didnt see much at all. Any feed back would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Prey is plentiful

Openning day was successful, 5pts and up, current weights have been 158.8 to 177, that I know of since Saturday...Good Luck and be safe.

The takes have been good and healthy. Vermont deer are smart, and you have to know where to go. But all has been very good so far...Temps have been running around 15 to 20, it's cold and keeps em moving.

Vermont Rifle Update ?

Went up last week and the signs were very good. Saw Does, they did have a nice 7 pointer taken off the hill opening week, best part was the local checking station had already doubled its last year total. Area I hunt was loaded with Moose, saw moose every day even got close enough to get grunted at. Great time would like to go back but with schedule and Mass Season starting next week just do not think its possible. Any chance of out of stater's getting moose permit next year? Good luck to all hunting Vermont as it is the most challenging state I have ever hunted.
