HUNTER ACCESS VERMONT
Connecting Landowners and Hunters

White-tailed deer browsing has profound implications for the structure and function of Vermont’s forested ecosystems, especially when deer densities are high.

Regulated hunting is a wildlife management tool that effectively controls deer densities. This site offers landowners and sportsmen a way to connect and develop a relationship to help manage deer densities, reduce property damage and improve habitat.

Getting Started

Landowner – Once you register, you will be provided with the contact information of hunters interested in hunting in your area. You can choose which option best suits your needs, and then make direct contact via e-mail or telephone. »Jump to registration

Deer Densities and
Vermont’s Forests

Over browsing by white-tailed deer can alter forest plant communities, threaten endangered plant species, reduce ground-level hiding cover and forage for other wildlife species, and reduce abundance of nesting birds when deer densities are too high. Agricultural crops and residential ornamentals also can be negatively impacted when there are too many deer.

For landowners, finding responsible hunters can be an important part of their wildlife management plan, especially if they are absentee or do not hunt themselves.
