Vermont annually holds lotteries for moose and antlerless deer hunting permits, as well as for a lifetime license. The number of hunting permits offered in the lotteries varies depending on the biological conditions of the moose and deer herds.
Vermont moose hunting permits lotteries may be held for hunting permits for a seven-day archery season (October 1-7) and/or a regular season (six consecutive days beginning the third Saturday in October).
