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.

Youth deer weekend slated for Nov. 8 and 9

Posted on October 29, 2014 |
By Addison Independent



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.

Rifle season totals slightly up, deer weights lower

Posted on December 5, 2013 |
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.

Youth Hunting Weekend deer kill numbers down slightly

Posted on November 20, 2013 |
By John S. McCright and Andy Kirkaldy



Martin deer.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — Younger hunters in the area did not have quite as much success on the Nov. 9-10 Youth Hunting Weekend as they had in the past two Novembers, but the 109 deer they had weighed at seven reporting stations in Addison County was very respectable compared to results over the past five years.

The 109 deer this Youth Hunting Weekend is down slightly from the 124 tagged over the same weekend in 2012, and one less than the number in 2011. In both 2009 and 2010 the final tally stood at 95,

NEW HAVEN — There is a special kind of excitement in a young Vermonter’s voice when he or she tells you about the first time they bagged a deer. One 15-year-old who shot his first deer this past Saturday during Vermont Youth Hunting Weekend had a unique twist — he is an exchange student from Spain visiting Vermont for a year.

Final 2012 deer hunt numbers show respectable result

Deer wrap chart.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — Between October’s bow season and December’s combined bow and muzzleloader season, Addison County weigh stations handled 346 deer — 183 killed by arrows and 163 shot with muzzleloader rifles.

The muzzleloader total is an estimate because game wardens conducting an investigation took a book with several names of successful hunters from Starksboro’s Jerusalem Country Store; the overall county number is therefore also an estimate, but is certainly accurate within a few deer.

Local rifle deer season results up 23 percent

ADDISON COUNTY — Despite uncooperative weather and inconsistent reports about the presence of deer, the number of bucks taken to Addison County’s weigh stations during the just-concluded 16-day rifle season ended up being the second-highest since 2003.

That year marked the last season before the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife adopted new rules banning rifle hunters from shooting at bucks with fewer than three antler points.
