Vermont Moose Permit Applications Available Now

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Anyone wishing to apply for a Vermont moose hunting permit, can go online at the Vermont Fish and Wildlife website and get started. Application fees are $10 for residents and $25 for non-residents. If you are selected by lottery, a resident will pay $100 for a license and non-residents will have to cough up $350. If not successful with either of these attempts, you’ll have a chance to bid on 5 permits that will be auctioned off later. Details not yet available.

Vermont has an estimated moose population that now is around 5,000. Last year 1,115 permits were issued for moose. 647 moose were taken during a split season. Season dates have not been set yet but it is anticipated another split season will occur around the same dates. The number of permits to be issued this year also has not been determined. It is believed to be sometime in February all the details will be announced.

Permits will be awarded in this manner – 90% will go to Vermont residents and 10% to non-residents. Application deadline is June 1, 2007.
