It's good you're seeing deer, A lot of the locals around here are saying they're not seeing enough deer to even talk about.
Vermont hunting is in rough shape, between the winter severity and poor management programs statewide,
I don't know how the state is going to get back on track. This year the State issued 9,650 doe permits for the ML'er season
and closed 11 of the 21 WMU's (wildlife management units), Last year they issued 17,050 and all WMU's were open,
That's a huge reduction in Permits and a huge area to close off from doe harvests. should be an indication to the hunters that we're in deep trouble here.
