An Archery Season Reminder from F&W

Vermontís archery deer season starts this Saturday, October 4.

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department reminds hunters that no antlerless deer may be taken in three Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) in the Northeast Kingdom during the 2014 archery season. The boundaries of several of the WMUs also were changed this year.

A hunter may take up to three deer in Vermontís two-part archery season with three archery licenses. No more than one of the deer taken during archery season may be a legal buck. No antlerless deer may be taken in Wildlife Management Unit (WMUs) D2, E1 or E2, where antlerless deer hunting is prohibited except during the November 8-9 Youth Deer Hunting Weekend in 2014.

Vermontís two-part archery deer season dates are October 4-26 and December 6-14 this year.

A map showing the revised WMU boundaries can be found on pages 22-23 of the 2014 Vermont Hunting, Fishing & Trapping LAWS and GUIDE, available where licenses are sold. The map also is on Fish &Wildlifeís website (
