Vermont 2010 Moose Applications Now Available
Vermont moose hunting permit applications are available on the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department's website (www.vtfishandwildlife.com) and at license agents statewide. Fish and Wildlife now has an online application that makes it easy to apply.
On Fish & Wildlife's website, look under "Hunting and Trapping," and then click on Lottery Applications. Lottery applications are $10 for residents and $25 for nonresidents. The deadline to apply is June 1.
Winners of the permit lottery will purchase resident hunting permits for $100 and nonresident hunting permits for $350. Hunters also will have the option to bid on five moose hunting permits in an auction to be announced later.
"Permit allocation numbers will not be finalized until a regulation is adopted in early summer," said Vermont Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Wayne Laroche. "We are making the applications available now for hunters' convenience. If you are concerned about making Wildlife Management Unit choices before permit numbers are set, you may want to wait to apply."
