1. Nulhegan Basin Division
This breathtaking area is considered the most remote area of the Green Mountain State. The nearest towns include Brunswick, Ferdinand, Bloomfield and Lewis, and the area is open to the public for hunting and fishing. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service notes that the most popular game to hunt in this area are ruffled grouse, snowshoe hare, deer and moose. Grouse, rabbit and hare seasons begin in late September, while deer rifle season kicks off in mid-November.

Hunters hoping to nab a moose can try during archery season, which begins in early October, or during regular moose season, which begins in mid-October. The FWS describes the area as “more than 26,000 acres of conifer and deciduous forest interspersed with forested wetlands, peatlands and shrub swamps."
