Visit Vt Fish &Wildlife at the Yankee Show, Jan. 16-18



ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. – The annual Yankee Sportsman’s Classic show will be held January 16, 17 and 18 at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction, and the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is inviting you to visit their exhibits and attend their seminars at the show.

“We are looking forward to talking with as many people as possible at the show,” said Nicole Corrao, information and education specialist with the department. “It’s a great opportunity for us to share the latest information about fish and wildlife, and it gives people a chance to talk to us about fish and wildlife issues. Our wardens, biologists and other staff will be at our exhibits.”

Be sure to visit Fish & Wildlife’s stocking truck display and see how hatchery staff raise and stock hatchery fish. An underwater camera will provide an up-close look at trout on the hatchery truck.

Fish & Wildlife is also sponsoring three seminars on Saturday, January 17 – on Vermont Deer at 12:00, Women Hunters Q&A at 1:00, and Whole Deer Processing at 3:00. The seminars will cover the current status of the deer herd, tips for women interested in or just beginning to learn about hunting, and techniques for preparing delicious local venison for meals.

Hunters, anglers and trappers will be able to buy their 2015 licenses and be entered into a raffle to win an L.L. Bean fishing kayak or a new shotgun.

Show hours are Noon to 7 p.m. on Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Learn more about the show at: (http://yankeeclassic.net).
