Hunting and Fishing in Vermont

Vermont is a state of celebrated heritage and lasting traditions. From the tapping of our maple trees in the spring to winding our way down our mountains the next winter and all we do in between, Vermont likes to hold onto the best of its past while carving out its finest possible future.

It's no surprise – or secret, then – that hunting and fishing are a precious aspect of life in Vermont today. Our abundance of game, coupled with a wealth of unspoiled woods, lakes, rivers and ponds, make it one of the top hunting and fishing destinations in the Northeast..
