Without top predators a growing deer herd can impact forest regeneration. Hunters today perform this essential ecological role.
Conservancy lands. We encourage hunters to obtain the current Vermont Digest of Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Laws published by the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife. You can also download a copy of our Hunting & Fishing Handout.
Verbal Permission: On most Conservancy-owned lands, verbal permission is NOT required to hunt. On some lands, you will need permission. There are 2 Critical Lands Managers. See our Natural Area Hunting Spreadsheet for which manager to call for each property.
