Waterbury, VT – The deadline to apply for a Vermont moose hunting permit is Tuesday, June 2.
The application must be postmarked no later than June 2, or delivered by 4:30 p.m. on that day to the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department in Waterbury.
Applications are available on the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department’s website (www.vtfishandwildlife.com). Under “Hunting and Trapping,” click on Lottery Applications. Applications also are available at license agents statewide.
Lottery applications are $10 for residents and $25 for nonresidents. Winners of the permit lottery will purchase resident permits for $100 and nonresident permits for $350.
Hunting season dates for 2009 are October 17-22, or October 24 through November 1. A total of 1,230 hunting permits will be issued, and about 600 moose are expected to be taken.
“We are managing Vermont’s moose population to keep it in balance with available habitat,” said Cedric Alexander, Vermont’s lead biologist on moose. “Carefully constructed hunting regulations enable us once again to enjoy having moose in Vermont on a sustainable basis, while their numbers are maintained at levels that fit habitat capacity and the needs of people.”
