Unallocated Antlerless Deer Permits Available

27 September 2018

MONTPELIER, Vt. – The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department says it has several thousand unallocated antlerless deer permits to be used in the December 1-9 muzzleloader deer season after it held its annual permit lottery on September 26. 


These permits can be purchased for $10 on the department’s website (www.vtfishandwildlife.com) on a first come, first served basis.


The unallocated permits are available because not enough people applied for them in the lottery.  Fourteen Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) had some permits available on September 27, but that number will decrease as permits are sold. 


A person who won a permit in the lottery may not purchase a second permit unless they take a deer with their first permit in the December season and then only if they have not reached their three-deer annual limit or two-deer muzzleloader season limit.
