A 41-year old sportsman from Virginia is the lucky winner of a Vermont lifetime hunting and fishing license.

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department held its annual License of a “Lifetime Lottery” at the December 14th meeting of the Fish and Wildlife Board in Montpelier. A lifetime hunting and fishing license is awarded to one person per year.

John Malone of Waterford, Virginia won the license in a drawing of 625 lottery tickets.
“The License of a Lifetime Lottery gives anyone, resident or nonresident, an opportunity to win a Vermont hunting and fishing license that is good for the rest of their life,” said Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Patrick Berry. “Even if you don’t win the license, it is a good feeling to know you have contributed to fish and wildlife conservation in Vermont.”

You can enter Vermont’s License of a Lifetime Lottery by purchasing a $2.00 ticket available where Vermont hunting and fishing licenses are sold and from the Fish & Wildlife Department.
