From Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department
-- Vermont's antlerless deer hunting lottery applications for the muzzleloader season are now available on the Fish & Wildlife Department's website and at license agents statewide. The permits are only for "antlerless deer," which is defined as deer without antlers or with antlers less than three inches long.
Permit numbers and wildlife management units (WMUs) open to antlerless hunting will not be finalized until August when the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Board finishes the regulatory process authorizing season rules.
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 6-14 muzzleloader season.
Antlerless deer permit applications are now available on Fish & Wildlife's website (www.vtfishandwildlife.com). Go to "Buy Your License" and select "Online Antlerless Lottery Application."
