Muzzleloader Antlerless Deer Permit Winners Announced

WATERBURY, VT – The winners of Vermont’s muzzleloader season antlerless deer permits are listed on the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department’s website (vtfishandwildlife.com). The department will also be conducting daily lotteries for unissued muzzleloader season antlerless deer permits on their website beginning late on Friday, October 3rd.

“Hunters who applied for muzzleloader antlerless deer permits and will be participating in the October 4-26 and December 6-14 archery season may want to check our website to find out if they will be receiving a muzzleloader season antlerless permit,” said Fish & Wildlife’s Chief of Operations Thomas Decker. “Knowing the answer will help them in planning their hunt. We will be mailing the permits out within the next three weeks.”

“About 4,000 muzzleloader antlerless deer permits are still available across nine Wildlife Management Units,” said Decker. “In order to meet deer management goals and keep the deer population in balance with its habitat, we will be running daily lotteries until the majority of permits are taken.”

Permit applications to enter the Antlerless Deer Hunting lottery are $10 for residents and $25 for nonresidents. Hunters can apply on the department’s website with their credit card. The lottery application form can be found under Hunting & Trapping/Lottery Applications & Winners. There will be a lottery drawing each evening, and permits will be sent by Email the following day.

“Hunters who do not have internet access at home may want to use a friend’s computer or go to a nearby library to get online,” said Decker. “We also will provide internet access here at our Waterbury office for those who want to travel to apply in person. If you must travel to Waterbury, you should call Fish & Wildlife at 802-241-1271 to verify which, if any, permits are still available.”

Antlerless deer permits were still available in the following WMUs on October 3rd: A-B-F1-F2-H1-H2-K1-K2-N.
