Vt. officials optimistic about deer hunting season

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

The first of Vermont's deer hunting seasons begins this weekend and state officials say hunters should be optimistic about their prospects.

Archery season opens Saturday and runs for most of October.

Biologists say after two straight relatively mild winters, they expect a "robust" deer population in many parts of the state.

Last year's overall kill of just under 14,000 was right around average for the past 10 years.
