Vermont’s Moose Hunt Preliminary Total is 40

ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. – The Vermont Fish &Wildlife Department says a preliminary count reveals hunters harvested 40 moose in this year’s regulated hunting seasons.

“A preliminary count on October 31 showed that hunters reported 8 moose being taken by 18 hunters in the October 1-7 archery season and 32 moose taken by 70 hunters in the October 21-26 regular season,” said Cedric Alexander, Vermont’s moose project leader. He said a few additional reports may still be sent in from other reporting agents.

Permits were issued for bulls-only in 16 of Vermont’s 21 Wildlife Management Units. The number of hunting permits and the restriction to bulls-only were designed to increase population growth.

The overall regular season hunter success rate reported to date is 46 percent, virtually unchanged from 45 percent last year.

A final report on Vermont’s moose hunting season will be available in January when all of the 2017 data have been received and reviewed.
