Anyone interested in the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department's proposed seasons and the prospects for the upcoming seasons should plan to attend one of three public hearings coming up soon.
The hearings are scheduled to allow the public to learn more about the results of the 2016 deer and moose seasons as well as what 2017 holds in store. The department will present its proposed season structure and permit opportunities.
Those decisions have not been set in stone and this is a great way for the public to give the department input on the proposals the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Board will decide on.
The hearings will be:
March 21, 6:30-9 p.m., Brattleboro Area Middle School.
March 23, 6:30-9 p.m., Brighton Town Hall in Island Pond.
March 25, 12:30-5 p.m., Middlebury High School.
The Middlebury event will include an open house to discuss bear, turkey, migratory game birds, habitat management projects in addition to the deer and moose.
