WATERBURY — Vermont landowners can now connect with hunters who wish to hunt in their areas through a new feature on the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department web site.
The department has developed an online system where hunters can register for permission to hunt in certain areas of the state. That came about after an advisory group of landowners, hunters, foresters and wildlife biologists recommended the state investigate issues of deer eating saplings and doing damage to forestry land and hunters unable to access private lands.
The department says landowners can now go to the website and contact hunters to hunt deer on their property.
A get connected quick link is on the web site under “items of special interest.”
