BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Chris Herrick is settling into his new role after being appointed to the post earlier this fall.

Herrick, who has served the past five years as deputy commissioner for Public Safety, will take on a number of long-standing issues including a downward trend in hunters, balancing non-game interests with those of hunters, and ecosystem fragmentation.

Ike Bendavid spoke with Herrick about what he hopes to bring to the new job.
