ADDISON COUNTY — The final count of bucks weighed in Addison County during the 2014 rifle season ended up at a below-average total of 359, but weigh station operators all said the animals were mostly good-sized.

Muzzleloader, bow, deer seasons remain

Posted on December 1, 2014 |
By Addison Independent



MONTPELIER — Vermont’s hunters will get one final chance for a deer this year during the muzzleloader deer season and the second part of the archery deer season. The two seasons run at the same time — Dec. 6-14. 

A muzzleloader hunter may take one legal buck anywhere in the state. In addition, a hunter who received a muzzleloader antlerless deer permit may take one antlerless deer in the Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) designated on the permit.

More young hunters have successful season

Posted on November 25, 2014 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



MIDDLEBURY — In all, 21 young hunters were successful during Youth Hunting Weekend and had deer weighed at Vermont Field Sports in Middlebury.

However, due to the fact that state wildlife biologists had initially taken information with them that weekend after overseeing weigh-ins, only five names were available immediately after the two-day youth hunt. They were published in the Nov. 17 edition of the Independent.

Local rifle deer season starts with typical take

Posted on November 20, 2014 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON COUNTY — A Saturday and Sunday with fair but cold weather saw Vermont’s deer rifle season get off to a solid, but not spectacular, start in the area.

During the first two days of the state’s 16-day rifle season, local hunters shot 154 deer and then took them to one of Addison County’s official weighing stations.

That opening weekend total dropped from the 200 killed in 2013’s first two days, but overall fell in line with numbers from the past four years’ opening weekends.

Vermont's rifle deer season begins Nov. 15

Posted on November 3, 2014 |
By Addison Independent



MONTPELIER — Hunters are gearing up for the start of Vermont’s statewide traditionally popular 16-day rifle deer season that begins Saturday, Nov. 15, and ends Sunday, Nov. 30. 

A hunter may take one buck during this season with at least one antler having two or more points one inch or longer. A point must be one inch or longer from base to tip. The main beam counts as a point, regardless of length. Spike-antlered deer, mostly yearlings, are protected during this season.

VERMONT — With youth deer weekend just around the corner, young hunters are encouraged to take to the field to hone their skills and to also help Fish & Wildlife biologists by reporting their deer at one of 23 biological check stations around the state, including two in Addison County.

Youth deer hunting weekend helps ensure that young hunters get the quality training they need for lifelong participation, and it also provides biological information needed to manage the herd into the future.

By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON COUNTY — The final count of deer reported to Addison County weigh stations during the 2013 rifle season came in at 421, up by 16, or about 4 percent, from 2012.

However, taking into account the drop in deer taken during Youth Hunting Weekend, the total not counting bow and muzzleloader seasons is almost exactly the same for 2013 and 2012.

Young hunters took 109 deer during Youth Hunting Weekend this year and 124 in 2012.
