Hunting opportunities abound. White-tailed deer, black bear, moose, wild turkey, ruffed grouse, woodcock, waterfowl, and snowshoe hare hunting are popular in the fall. A wild turkey gobbler season in May offers the best turkey hunting in New England.
Few states can match the quality of a Vermont hunt, which includes the legendary scenery of the Green Mountain State.
Finding a place to hunt in Vermont is easy with more than 800,000 acres of conserved wildlife habitat open to public hunting. The free "Hunting Guide Map," available from the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, is invaluable in planning your hunt.
Hunting in Vermont is now being rediscovered by Vermonters and visitors alike as a high-quality way to learn about the natural world, the local environment, wildlife, and of course, oneself. Vermont’s youth hunting programs and women’s specific programs, make it easy, fun and exciting for the whole family to get involved in the tradition and heritage of a Vermont hunt.
