Muzzleloader antlerless deer permit applications due Aug. 12


The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department reminds hunters that muzzleloader season antlerless deer permit applications are available on its website, vtfishandwildlife.com until Aug. 12.

The muzzleloader seasons on Oct. 29-Nov. 1 and Dec. 5-13 will have antlerless permits available for 19 of Vermont’s 21 Wildlife Management Units.

“Yearling antler beam diameters, fawn weights and other physical condition measures are declining in many areas, indicating that deer have exceeded the level their habitat can support long-term,” said Nick Fortin, Fish and Wildlife’s deer project leader.

The deadline to apply for a muzzleloader antlerless deer permit is August 12.
