To enter this contest, you must purchase a 2014 Vermont hunting, fishing, trapping or combination license from the Vermont Fish & Wildlife website. Licenses purchased from agents or through the mail do not enter you in this contest.
One entry per person – purchasing additional tags does not enter you in this contest multiple times. Permanent licenses purchased online to start in 2014 also enter the purchaser in this contest.
If you have trouble purchasing a license online, you may call the Fish & Wildlife Department at 802-828-1000 and we can guide you through the process.
If you do not have access to the internet, most public libraries have internet access available for public use. If your local public library does not have internet, you may contact us at 802-828-1000 and make arrangements to buy your license online at one of our district offices with the help of our staff.
