From the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department - Vermont’s Rifle Deer Season Starts Saturday, Nov. 15
MONTPELIER, Vt. -- Hunters are gearing up for the start of Vermont’s statewide traditionally popular 16-day rifle deer season that begins November 15 and ends Sunday, November 30.
A hunter may take one buck during this season with at least one antler having two or more points one inch or longer. A point must be one inch or longer from base to tip. The main beam counts as a point, regardless of length. Spike-antlered deer, mostly yearlings, are protected during this season.
“Vermont’s pre-hunt deer population is estimated at approximately 135,000 this year with the greatest numbers of deer found in the southwest, east-central, and northwestern regions of the state,” said Deer Project Leader Adam Murkowski.
