CHANGES TO HOW THE PERMITS ARE ISSUED TO LOTTERY WINNERS
The orange post card permits will NOT be mailed to you this year.
Instead the antlerless muzzleloader permit will be printed on your license when you purchase your license or may print on a second page depending on when you purchase your license.
*REMINDER: You must have a valid Vermont hunting license and a muzzleloader license in addition to your antlerless deer permit. The permit entitles you to take one antlerless deer from the Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) listed on your permit using a muzzleloader firearm during the 2018 muzzleloader season.
If you have already purchased a license, you will need to reprint your license to receive your antlerless muzzleloader permit. Licenses can be reprinted online, at any local agent or any district office.
*If you are a landowner you may hunt on your own property without a hunting or muzzleloader license.
If you didn't win a permit you're eligible to get a permit in WMUs with unallocated antlerless deer muzzleloader permits. Cost is $10.00.
If you won a permit in the lottery you may not purchase a second permit unless you take a deer with your first permit in the December season and then only if you have not reached your three-deer annual limit or two-deer muzzleloader season limit.
There are unallocated antlerless permits in the following WMUs: A, B, F1, F2, J2, K, M, N, O, and Q (view map of WMUs). Hurry, they go quick!
