Vermont has 38 Unallocated Anterless Deer Permits
The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department has 38 unallocated antlerless deer hunting permits available for Wildlife Management Unit - Q in southeastern Vermont.
The department explains not enough people sent in valid applications to reach the permit allocation to achieve the deer goal for WMU-Q.
"As part of the state deer program's scientific review and subsequent recommendation, a total of 900 permits were available for WMU-Q, and all have been issued except the 38," said John Buck, chair of the department's deer management team. "Ensuring recommended permit numbers are issued in each WMU helps us maintain an accurate estimate of hunter success."
The 38 unallocated permits will be sold on a first come, first serve basis to hunters who purchase them in person at the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department's Waterbury office located at 103 South Main Street. The office is open from 7:45 am to 4:30 pm during the week. An "antlerless deer" is defined as a deer without antlers or with antlers less than three inches long. An antlerless deer permit is good for one antlerless deer taken by muzzleloader during the December 2 - 10 muzzleloader season. Permits are $10 for residents and $25 for nonresidents. If you will be driving a long distance to Waterbury, you should call Fish & Wildlife at 802-241-3700 to make sure permits are still available.
