Several Days of Archery and Muzzleloader Deer Hunting Remain

29 November 2021

Hunters still have several days of archery and muzzleloader deer hunting to enjoy in Vermont.

Archery deer hunting continues November 29 through December 15, and muzzleloader deer hunting will occur December 4 to 12. 

An archery deer license and a hunting license are required to hunt during the archery season.  An antlerless deer or a legal buck, if you did not take one earlier, are allowed during this season.

A muzzleloader deer license and a hunting license are required to hunt during the muzzleloader season.  A legal buck may be taken if you did not take one earlier, and an antlerless deer may be taken in a designated Wildlife Management Unit if you have a muzzleloader antlerless deer permit and you have not already reached your annual limit.  A few of these permits may still be available on Vermont Fish and Wildlife’s website.

Vermont has an annual limit of four deer during its deer hunting seasons, including only one legal buck annually during those seasons.
