Public Input Sought at Deer Hearings
Four public hearings are being held in February by the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Board in order to gather public input on a proposed deer hunting regulation.
All of the hearings will be held from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in auditoriums as follows:
Springfield - February 15 at Springfield High School, 303 South Street
Rutland - February 17 at Rutland Intermediate School, 6365 Liberty Avenue.
Lyndonville - February 22 at Lyndon State College, 1001 College Road
St. Albans - February 24 at Bellows Free Academy, 71 Main Street.
According to the proposed regulation, Vermont's deer hunting rules would remain unchanged except that only one 'buck' may be taken in a year, and that in Wildlife Management Units B, J1 and K2, a legal 'buck' must have at least one antler with two discernable points.
The proposed regulation is posted on the Fish & Wildlife website at: http://www.vtfishandwildlife.com/rules/2005_Deer_Management_Rule_1501.pdf.
