BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - During Vermont’s youth and novice weekend this Saturday and Sunday, state wildlife biologists are encouraging hunters to stop by a biological check station once they bag a buck.

The goal is to help biologists gather data on the health of Vermont’s deer population.

Hunters are required to report deer in person at a big game reporting station this weekend because online reporting will not be available.
