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.
A hunter who wins an antlerless deer permit in the lottery may take one antlerless deer by muzzleloader in the designated wildlife management unit (WMU) during the Dec.1-9, 2007 muzzleloader season. The applications are available at www.vtfishandwildlife.com. Go to "Hunting and Trapping" then click on Lottery Applications.
The wildlife management units (WMUs) that will have muzzleloader antlerless permits this year are A, B, F1, F2, H1, H2, J1, J2, K1, M2, N, O2, and Q.
The 11,050 muzzleloader antlerless permits are being issued to help slow the growth of the deer population in these units. The hunt is expected to net a harvest of about 2,000 deer.
Applications must be postmarked no later than August 24 or delivered by 4:30 p.m. that day to the Waterbury Fish & Wildlife office. The cost is $10 for residents and $25 for nonresidents. A person may submit only one application.
Vermont has an annual limit of two deer per hunter per year.
