The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is reminding Vermont hunters there are some new rules in effect.
Hunters cannot take a wild animal within 25 feet of a public road.
It's now illegal to fire a gun, crossbow and bow and arrow across a public road.
It is now OK for a hunter to carry a pistol or revolver while hunting during bow and arrow season, but that gun cannot be used to kill a deer. It's still illegal to carry a rifle, shotgun or muzzleloader while bow hunting deer during bow and arrow season.
