Seminar on hunting access offered to landowners

WOODSTOCK—The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department will hold a free seminar for landowners interested in learning more about hunting, wildlife management, and conservation, Sunday, Oct. 16 from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller Forest Center in Woodstock. The seminar is co-hosted by the nonprofit Vermont Coverts.
The seminar will feature workshops and presentations by Fish & Wildlife head of law enforcement Col. Jason Batchelder as well as several department biologists. They will review the rights of landowners and the limits to liability, and talk about who hunts in Vermont and what other recreational uses of private lands take place here. Biologists will also speak on the science of wildlife management and discuss hunting as a tool for promoting healthy forests.
“This seminar is designed for anyone who wants to learn more about Vermont’s hunting culture, and how landowners fit in the picture,” said Chris Saunders of the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department. “We’ll participate in thoughtful discussion as a group, and address many of the facts and myths about hunting and hunters.”
The seminar is free and includes breakfast and lunch. To sign up or ask questions, contact Lisa Sausville at
