Special Meeting Set to Discuss 2005 Deer Management Rule
The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Board will hold a special meeting on Wednesday, June 1 to discuss the 2005 deer hunting regulations. The meeting will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the Chapel Conference Room at the Waterbury State Office Complex.
The Legislature's Committee on Administrative Rules postponed ruling on the new deer regulations to give the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Board a chance to revisit them. The F&W Board voted April 21 to keep a 3" antler restriction, to prohibit the baiting and feeding of deer, to set a 2 deer / 1 buck annual limit, and to require that all antlerless deer be taken by permit except on youth weekend.
