Hunting the Green Mountains
Vermont's abundance of game makes it one of the top hunting destinations in the Northeast
Hunting opportunities abound in Vermont. White-tailed deer, black bear, moose, wild turkey, ruffed grouse, woodcock, waterfowl, and snowshoe hare hunting are all popular in the fall. Few states can match the experience 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 for planning your expedition.
Hunting in Vermont is now being rediscovered by Vermonters and visitors alike as a way to learn about the natural world, the local environment, and wildlife. Vermont’s youth hunting programs make it easy, fun and exciting for the whole family to get involved in the tradition and heritage of a Vermont hunt.
There are also many hunting and trapping opportunities you can take advantage of throughout the state. For complete information about hunting and trapping, view the 2017 Vermont Hunting & Trapping Guide.
