Special Opportunity Moose Hunt, Sept. 13 Deadline

Special opportunity moose hunts for as many as three people under 21 years old who have a life threatening disease or illness are being offered by Vermont, but the deadline to apply is Thursday, September 13.

All applicants must be sponsored by a charitable organization with 501(c) (3) status. The deadline to apply to the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is September 13, 2012, and there is no cost to apply and no cost for the permit.

Those who are selected to receive a special opportunity moose hunting permit must purchase a Vermont hunting license before going hunting. In order to purchase the license, the person must have passed a hunter education course or have held a hunting license previously.

Each recipient of one of these hunting permits may take one moose of either sex during the October 20-25 moose hunting season. The permittee may designate up to five support personnel who may accompany the permittee on the moose hunt, one of whom may be a second shooter with a Vermont hunting license.

Information and a special application are available from the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department. Tel. 802-241-3695. Email:
