Vermont Moose Hunters Have Success in 2011

Posted by admin On November - 7 - 2011

It was a good year to be a moose hunter in Vermont, according to the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.

Hunters in that state had pretty successful seasons in both the new archery moose hunt, which was held Oct. 1-7, and the regular moose hunting season, which was Oct. 15-20.

“A preliminary count shows that by October 25, the department had received official reports of 10 moose being taken by 53 hunters in the archery season, and 231 moose taken by 406 hunters in the regular season,” said Cedric Alexander, Vermont’s moose project leader.

A few additional reports are still expected to be sent in from other reporting agents.

This was Vermont’s 19th moose hunting season in modern times, the first occurring in 1993 when 30 permits were issued and 25 moose were taken by hunters.

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department reports that 1,008 residents and 450 nonresidents entered Vermont’s 2011 archery moose permit lottery, and 8,788 residents and 2,614 nonresidents entered the regular moose season lottery.
