Vermont Moose Check Stations Open Oct. 18-23

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department reminds moose hunters with permits for the October 18-23 moose hunting season that if they take a moose, they must bring it to one of the five designated biological moose reporting stations within 48 hours.

“We strongly suggest you report your moose as quickly as possible in order to protect against meat spoilage,” said Cedric Alexander, Vermont’s moose biologist. “We will be operating biological moose check stations only during the October 18-23 season from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the State Highway Garages in Barton, Island Pond, Middlesex and Londonderry, and at Barnie’s Market on U.S. Route 2 in Concord Village. Weighing scales will be present at all five stations.”

The State Highway Garages are located as follows:

* Barton: on Route 16 just south of I91 exit 25

* Island Pond: just west of the village on Route 114

* Middlesex: on US Route 2 one mile west of I89 exit 9

* Londonderry: on Derry Wood Road, one quarter mile east of the junction of Routes 100 and 11

An archery moose hunting season was held October 1-7, during which successful hunters could take their moose to a big game reporting station that normally receives deer, bear and turkey taken by hunters. Any moose to be reported on October 24 or 25 must also be taken to one of these same big game reporting station.
