Many changes are coming for the Vermont deer hunting season, one of which will outlaw a popular method of luring the animals.
Louis Porter, Vermont Fish and Wildlife commissioner told reporters of two upcoming changes; “One is allowing crossbows for hunters who are 50 and over any time a vertical bow can be used. Another change is lengthening by five days the archery season.”

Although use of natural deer fluids is an effective tool used by many hunters, its illegality will be better for Vermont deer hunting in the long run.
Porter added, “The potential harm is the spread of chronic wasting disease. We’re lucky; 23 states and two Canadian provinces now have chronic wasting disease. We’re lucky that we don’t have any cases of it here in Vermont and we want to keep it that way.”
