Vermont Antlerless Deer Application Deadline is Thursday, Aug. 27

Waterbury, VT – The deadline to apply for a Vermont antlerless deer hunting permit is Thursday, August 27. The Fish & Wildlife Department is asking hunters to help by applying on-line to keep data entry time and costs to a minimum.

Applications must be either submitted on-line by August 27, delivered to the Waterbury Fish & Wildlife office by 4:30 p.m. that day or postmarked no later than August 27. On-line applications are found at (www.vtfishandwildlife.com). Go to “Hunting and Trapping” and click on Lottery Applications.

The permits are only for "antlerless deer," which is defined as deer without antlers or with antlers less than three inches long.
A hunter who wins an antlerless deer permit in the lottery may take one antlerless deer by muzzleloader in the designated WMU during the December 5-13, 2009 muzzleloader season.
The WMUs proposed to have muzzleloader antlerless permits this year are A, B, C, D1, F1, F2, H1, H2, J1, J2, K1, K2, M2, N, O2, and Q. The 23,725 muzzleloader antlerless permits proposed will help slow the growth of the deer population in these units and are expected to net a harvest of about 4,200 deer. Only about 20 percent of hunters with antlerless permits actually take a deer.
Applications cost $10 for residents and $25 for nonresidents. A person may submit only one application.
