Vermont Moose Hunting

Hunting Regulations Icon Vermont Hunting

Vermont moose hunting permit lotteries may be held for hunting permits for a 7-day archery season (Oct. 1-7) and a regular season (6 consecutive days beginning the third Saturday in Oct.). Moose hunting information will be available on Fish & Wildlife’s website in April. Modern, regulated moose hunting began in 1993, and since then 6,421 moose have been harvested, yielding an estimated 906 tons of boneless moose meat.

Each winter department biologists review biological data from hunter- and road-killed moose, sighting data from moose and deer hunters, and other information to develop a hunting season proposal for the Fish & Wildlife Board.

In recent years, declining moose populations have led to reductions in permit numbers for most Wildlife Management Units, and the introduction of bull-only hunting across much of the State, in order to grow regional populations.
