1. Crow
Starting in mid-August, Vermont residents and visitors who want to bag crows have their chance. The season spills over into fall, ending in late October typically. There are no limits when it comes to taking crow, and there is another crow season that starts in the spring, according to the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.

WPTZ-TV reported that Vermont may consider changing the dates of crow hunting season, changing to a winter and spring season from mid-January to mid-April and another season from the end of April until mid-August, so it’s important to check state and local regulations before embarking on a crow hunting outing in coming seasons.

2. Black Bear
Two black bear hunting seasons exist in Vermont with the first kicking off in late summer at the start of September and lasting until mid-November. In 2014, the bear open seasons were expanded, but the limit still remains only one bear per calendar year. Also, hunters should keep in mind that no bait and no traps are to be used to take bear. When reporting a bear, the hunter must also provide a pre-molar tooth as stipulated by the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife.

3. Canada Geese
The hunting zones in Vermont vary in their open season dates for Canada geese. In the Lake Champlain and Interior Vermont Zones, hunting is permissible for most of September and again from mid-October to the end of November. In the Connecticut River Zone, there are three eligible periods for hunting Canada geese in Vermont. These run for most of September, then for most of October, and finally again from mid-November to mid-December, according to Backwoods Sportsman Outdoors.
