Hunting can be one of the most valuable tools for wildlife conservation and private land stewardship. Come learn the benefits of a good relationship between landowners and hunters, how to make sure it is a partnership that works for both, and how to manage hunter access at a free seminar this fall for landowners.
Co-hosted by the nonprofit Vermont Coverts, department staff will: introduce you to who hunters are and what hunting is and is not; review landowner rights and the laws and regulations that govern hunting; and provide a forum to discuss concerns about hunters or hunting on your property.
The seminar will be held on Thursday, November 9th from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Springfield State Office Complex, 100 Mineral Street, Springfield 05156. Main Floor conference room (enter through front doors and turn left).
"While everyone is welcome, this seminar is designed for new landowners and those with limited experience with hunters and hunting," said Chris Saunders of the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department. "We'll address many of the facts and myths about hunting and hunters and we won't shy away from the real concerns some landowners have with public access."
