MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont’s antlerless deer muzzleloader lottery is now open.

The muzzleloader seasons on October 26 to 29 and December 2 to 10 will have antlerless permits available for 19 of Vermont’s 21 Wildlife Management Units. The drawing for the permits will occur in September.

Wildlife leaders say efforts to manage deer numbers have been successful and the goal now is to maintain current deer numbers in most of the state.
