Hunting Opportunities: Moose

Bullmoose Moose in Vermont are managed through a permit lottery system, by management unit, allowing the department to limit or expand the harvest numbers annually by region. This helps to conserve the resource and the habitat while still being able to offer quality hunting opportunities.

Vermont offers two moose seasons annually. The archery season opens on October 1 and runs for seven consecutive days. The regular season runs for a six-day period starting the 3rd Saturday in October. Dates will change from year to year. Moose permits are valid for the moose season in the calendar year they are drawn. Permits are not transferable.

Resident fee to submit an application is $10, and is non-refundable. Nonresident application fee is $25 and is also non-refundable. Only one application may be submitted per person. If more than one application is submitted by an individual, all applications from that individual will be disqualified.

Permits are drawn by lottery. Up to 10% of the permits may be issued to nonresidents. Applicants who are successfully drawn in the lottery will be notified by mail and will receive a Moose Hunter's Guidebook and Permit Form along with instructions to complete the Permit Form. Successful applicants must possess a current year's Vermont hunting license before returning their Permit Form in order to secure the permit. Unsuccessful applicants will not be notified.

Moose Harvest Reports are posted on the Biggame web page as they become available.
