When I visited Alaska in 2003 with my father for a six-day wilderness float trip, bookended on both sides by day-and-a-half-long visits to a wilderness fishing lodge, I thought it would be a once-in-a-lifetime trip. Alaska is neither inexpensive nor particularly easy to visit. And between the breathtaking landscape and outstanding backcountry fishing — including landing two king salmon over 30 pounds on a fly rod — the trip was so thoroughly enjoyable and beautiful that it would have qualified as once-in-a-lifetime.  But 15 years later my brother Ted and his family moved to Alaska.

MONTPELIER — The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department recently launched a new webpage to provide information and answer questions about changes to deer hunting regulations.

MONTPELIER — The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is directing hunters to follow the regulation designed to keep Vermont deer healthy by banning the use of anydeerlurecontainingnaturaldeer urine or other deer bodily fluids. Such lures can carry the infectious agent of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD). CWD is 100% fatal to deer, elk and moose. It causes irreversible population declines and has been impossible to eliminate once it becomes established in a population. Luckily it has not yet been detected in Vermont. The agent is a mutant protein or “prion” that can be passed in urine. This...
