Public Hearings Set for Deer, Moose

Hunters, landowners and anyone else interested in wildlife, especially deer and moose, should plan on attending one of the Vermont Fish & Wildlife public hearings being held in late March.

The hearings will include results of Vermont's 2016 deer and moose seasons and prospects for hunting next fall as well as an opportunity for people to provide their observations and opinions regarding deer and moose.

The hearings will also include a review of the proposed 2017 moose hunting season and an opportunity for the public to provide feedback on the number of moose permits recommended for 2017.

The meeting in Middlebury will include an "Open House" discussion of deer, moose, bear, turkey, migratory birds, and habitat management projects.

The hearings are scheduled as follows:

Tuesday, March 21 Brattleboro - 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. -- Brattleboro Area Middle School, 109 Sunny Acres, Brattleboro, VT 05301

Thursday, March 23 Island Pond - 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. -- Brighton Town Hall, 49 Mill Street, Island Pond, VT 05846
