Deer Meetings Begin March 19th

WATERBURY, VT -- If you have an interest in Vermont's white-tailed deer you will want to attend one of the five annual public meetings being held in March by the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department to discuss the deer herd. The meetings begin March 19 in Springfield.

Wildlife biologists will share information on 2007 hunting season results as well as data gathered at biological check stations on antler measurements, ages and weights of deer taken. Winter severity data also will be reviewed.

In addition, the biologists will be asking for input from hunters. The recent changes in hunting regulations designed to increase the number of older aged bucks are of particular interest.

Anyone interested is urged to attend one of the following meetings, all beginning at 7:00 p.m. and ending at 8:30 p.m.

March 19 Springfield Riverside Jr. High School Cafeteria

March 20 East Montpelier Union 32 High School Cafeteria
