Hunting in Vermont: 3 Things to Know Before Applying for a Hunting Permit for Adults

By    |   Thursday, 04 Jun 2015 03:27 PM

There are ample opportunities for hunting in Vermont. Prospective hunters should be familiar with all hunting rules and regulations before applying for a permit.

The Green Mountain State divides hunting license requirements into to categories for permanent, disability and lifetime licenses; mentor hunting licenses; and licenses for military personnel. In addition, hunter education is required if a person does not have a previous hunting license from any state, according to the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department. It’s important to check state and local regulations in advance of any hunting outing taking place in Vermont.

Here are three things to keep in mind when seeking a license for hunting in Vermont.

1. Mentor Hunting License
One fast and easy option for hunters that are new to hunting in Vermont is to apply for a mentor hunting license. This license allows anyone to hunt – even if they haven’t passed the hunter education course or haven't held a hunting license in the past – as long as they are accompanied at all times with an adult that is both licensed and certified. The rule stipulates that the mentor hunter license holder be within 15 feet of the fully licensed hunter at all times.

2. Military Personnel
Active military members stationed in Vermont may obtain a hunting license free of charge. This license permits its owner to “keep the license until it expires, whether or not the person continues to serve in the armed forces,” according to the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department. Military personnel must visit the Montpelier office or apply online as these military licenses are not yet available from license agents.

3. Documentation
When applying for a hunting license, one of two documents needs to be provided to get the process started. The hunting applicant must show a previous hunting license from any state or anywhere in Canada, or they must supply proof of passing the hunter education course. Specifically for bow hunters, they must supply proof of completing a bow hunter education course. As for trappers, a previous trapper license is required or proof that they completed a trapper education course.
