Operation Game Thief Exhibit in Middlebury Nov. 10

23 October 2019

Vermont State Game Wardens are inviting the public, and especially young hunters, to visit their Operation Game Thief mobile exhibit from Noon to 3 p.m. at G. Stone Motors on Route 7 in Middlebury on Sunday, November 10 – the second day of Vermont’s youth deer hunting weekend.

G. Stone Motors and Vermont Field Sports as well as other local businesses are hosting a youth hunting celebration at that time with some lifetime hunting licenses, hats, shirts, and other items plus a free meal for kids. 

Operation Game Thief (OGT) is a joint non-profit program sponsored by the Vermont Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs and administered by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.  The program provides a way for people to help protect Vermont’s wildlife resources by reporting wildlife law violators at 1-800-75ALERT (1-800-752-5378).   The toll-free hotline is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year to report violations.  Rewards are paid for information leading to arrests. 

Vermont has a limited number of wardens patrolling our fields, forests and waterways.  The Fish and Wildlife Department relies on Vermonters to help reduce wildlife violations.
