Warning for hunters

Posted: Updated:

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is sending a warning to hunters this morning about game catches.

A reminder for hunters this morning about bringing deer and elk in from other states.

It is illegal to bring deer and elk from states or Canadian provinces that have had cases of chronic wasting disease.

The rules are designed to protect Vermont's deer herd from the deadly brain disease.

There are exceptions that include meat that is cut up and packaged.
