Nonresidents Recreating in Vermont
NEW - Effective November 10, 2020, the State of Vermont is requiring anyone traveling to Vermont from another state to complete a 14-day quarantine before participating in any activities outside of a home or dwelling, including hunting, fishing and other outdoor recreation pursuits. This travel policy will be reviewed weekly and the most current guidance will be made available on the Cross State Travel website. Hunters and anglers are encouraged to carefully consider this quarantine requirement before purchasing a license, and make sure to allow sufficient time to quarantine as part of any planned travel to Vermont.
