Hunting in Vermont: 3 Animals To Hunt Year-Round

By    |   Thursday, 04 Jun 2015 11:06 PM

The Green Mountain State has few animals that are eligible for hunting year-round and a limited number nuisance animals. However, there are a few animals that do not have closed seasons in Vermont. In addition, some hunting lodges have permits that allow for hunting year-round on their grounds for such game as pheasants.

It’s important to check local and state regulations before embarking on any hunting excursion, especially when seeking animals that are eligible to be hunted anytime of year.

Here are three animals to hunt year-round in Vermont.

1. Coyote
Considered a nuisance animal in many places in America, the coyote can be hunted at any hour as long as no lights are used, according to the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.

“You do need regulated hunting to help control populations. And if you don’t have that, then coyotes would become a real problem,” game warden Rob Sterling told WCAX-TV.

2. Pheasant
Pheasants have an open season that starts at the end of September and lasts until the end of December. However, some preserves are open year-round, including Moonshine Ranch.

3. Feral Pigs
Feral pigs are considered a nuisance nationwide, and hunters in Vermont are permitted to take these animals year-round. These animals are not protected in the state and any hunter with a valid Vermont hunting license who comes across one may kill it, according to HuntWildPig.com. The state also bans captive hunt facilities from having wild hogs.
