Managing Vermont’s Big Game

Print More

Vermont’s big game populations of bear, deer, moose and wild turkey are
thriving, but there are threats to habitat and some wide regional
variations in their numbers.  A new ten year plan drafted by
the Fish and Wildlife Department attempts to address these issues – and
includes some intriguing suggestions – like special hunting seasons to
reduce the number of deer in suburban areas, and increased regulation of
captive animal facilities in Vermont, where penned deer are hunted.  We’ll talk about the plan with Lawrence Pyne, host of Vermont Public
Television’s Outdoor Journal and with biologist John Buck of the Department of
Fish and Wildlife. Listen 

We’ll also talk with John Gregg of the Valley News about plans to relocate one
of the helicopters Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center uses to transport
critically ill and injured patients. Listen
