General | July 17, 2020

Below is a news release from the Vermont Fish and Game Department.

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is offering a new way for Vermonters to get started hunting through their recently established mentorship program, “Learn to Hunt: Mentor Meet-Ups.”

“This free, interactive, two-part program is designed for hunters over the age of 16 to pair with experienced mentors at a meet-and-greet this summer followed by a guided hunt this fall,” said Education Manager Alison Thomas.  “Hunters will learn safe hunting practices, hunting strategies, hunting regulations, and season dates, and they will be able to apply what they have learned in a mentored hunt.”  Hunter Education Program Coordinator Nicole Meier also mentioned, “The goal of this program is to eliminate the barrier to entry many new hunters face.  A social support system is key for new hunters and we hope this program will help them build their hunting community.”
