WATERBURY, Vt. (AP) - Vermont officials say moose hunters were successful this year, with more than half getting moose during the 6-day season.
Cedric Alexander, Vermont's moose project leader, said Tuesday that preliminary numbers show that 406 hunters took 231 moose during the Oct 15-20 season.
And officials say 10 moose were taken by 53 hunters during a new moose archery season held from Oct. 1-7.
A final report on the state's moose hunt will come out in January when all of the data is in.
