For hunters in Vermont who like hunt deer with a muzzleloader or a bow, now is the time for both. The official seasons for both types of deer hunting have officially opened as of Saturday, and ends on the December 13th. offering hunters a final chance to bag a deer in 2015.
The opening of the archery season is a second part of the season, where the first part took place in October from the 3rd to the 25th. During the active muzzleloader season, hunters may take just one legal buck anywhere in the state.
The same goes for an archery hunter, both only if they have not taken one during the earlier part of the season back in October. To clarify, a legal buck is one that has at least one antler having two or more points one inch or longer.
To take part in either of these seasons that lasts a little more than a week, you need to have a respective license for the type of hunting you’ll be doing on top of your regular license.
Regular deer seasons in both Vermont and New Hampshire have ended, with New Hampshire’s closing just yesterday.
