MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department will hold public hearings this month on next fall’s proposed moose hunt and the health status of the deer herd.

The results of last year’s deer hunting seasons will also be discussed at the meetings.

The department has proposed issuing 100 moose hunting permits next fall for the northeastern corner of the state to reduce the effects of winter ticks on the animal’s population.

Three in-person hearings will be held, all at 6:30 p.m.:

March 21 at Spaulding High School

March 23 at Kehoe Conservation Camp in Castleton

March 24 at Lake Region High School in Orleans.

An online meeting takes place on March 29 at 6:30 p.m.
