MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont hunters who applied for permits to hunt antlerless deer with muzzleloaders can now check the Department of Fish and Wildlife’s website to see if they've won.

The Fish and Wildlife Board approved the number of December muzzleloader permits at 12,425 for 15 of the state’s 24 Wildlife Management Units.

Biologists expect hunters to take about 2,200 antlerless deer in the muzzleloader season and about 3,000 during youth and archery seasons.
