MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Young hunters taking part in Vermont’s annual youth deer hunt this weekend are encouraged to report any deer they get to one of 23 biological reporting stations around the state.

The Fish and Wildlife Department says examining deer during the youth deer hunting weekend is its best chance to assess the deer herd because young hunters may harvest any deer, including single antler bucks. Biologists say the information gathered will help to assess the condition of the deer population, including ages, weights and antler development.

Anyone 15 years old or younger who has successfully completed a hunter education course may purchase a hunting license and obtain a free youth deer hunting tag. The young hunter must be accompanied by an unarmed adult who holds a Vermont hunting license.
