New Hunting Rules in Effect in Vermont

Posted on October 3, 2013

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department points out that three new hunting rules passed by legislature are now in effect.
 
A person shall not take or attempt to take any wild animal by shooting a firearm, a bow and arrow or a crossbow while on or within 25 feet of the traveled portion of a public road.
 
It is also illegal to shoot a firearm, a bow and arrow or a crossbow across the traveled portion of a public road.
 
It is now legal to carry a pistol or revolver while bow hunting deer in the bow and arrow deer season. The pistol or revolver MAY NOT be used to dispatch deer. It is still illegal to carry a rifle, shotgun or muzzleloader while bow hunting deer in the bow and arrow deer season.
