Visit VT Fish & Wildlife at the Yankee Show, Jan. 19-21

The annual Yankee Sportsman's Classic show will be held January 19, 20 and 21 at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction, and the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is inviting you to visit their exhibits and attend their seminars at the show.

"We are looking forward to talking with as many people as possible at the show," said Fish & Wildlife Commissioner Louis Porter. "It's a great opportunity for us to share the latest information about fish and wildlife, and it gives people a chance to talk with us about fish and wildlife issues. Our wardens, biologists and other staff will be at our exhibit."

The 2018 hunting, fishing and trapping lawbooks and optional Vermont big game tags will be available at Fish & Wildlife's exhibit booth. The free tags are offered as a durable alternative to paper tags on licenses and may be used to tag deer, bear or turkeys. Hunters, anglers, and trappers will also be able to buy their 2018 licenses.

Fish & Wildlife is coordinating two Saturday seminars upstairs on field dressing and processing deer by Rodney and Theresa Elmer at 1 p.m. and Wild Game Cooking with the Skinny Pancake at 2:30 p.m. upstairs. Commissioner Porter will also hold a Q&A session Saturday at Noon.

Show hours are Noon to 7 p.m. on Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Learn more about the show at: (
