Hunting In Vermont

Hunting In Vermont

When people think Vermont and Hunting its usually only associated with Deer. While Vermont does have a great history with deer I find that our waterfowl get forgotten about. I am a little atypical for a Vermonter as I prefer to duck or goose hunt over the elusive White Tail Deer. I personally find it much more fun and rewarding to go out with a group of my friends and have a great hunt where everyone gets to shoot. There are signs of us duck hunters are throughout the state. I am sure many of you have driven across the Sandbar and saw it speckled with blinds sticking out of the water. Many other residents like myself from Colchester have become accustom to hearing shots in the distance coming from the Causeway or Half Moon swamp when first light hits.
While I cannot reveal the exact location of our spots for fear of my safety I can tell you a little about where we like to hunt. Addison County has quickly became a second home to myself along with my friends. If i had a dollar for every time I traveled Route 22A I would certainly be wealthy at this point. While towns like Waltham and Bridport sound foreign to many Vermonters you can often find me there in the early predawn hours getting ready in a dark empty corn field. Addison is a migration path for the migratory birds. At some points in the year its truly remarkable how many birds and species of birds are moving through our state. With a lot of driving under my belt I know where to look for the most part. The real challenge usually comes when turning on the charm while talking with the farmer whose land you hope to hunt on the next morning. However, with Vermont being what it is we usually have good success when asking for permission.
Like any hunter you will have your good hunts along with the terrible ones. The best part is you are outdoors in Vermont taking advantage of the beauty it has to offer. Limit or not it seems when you are with your friends outdoors in this state you will have a good time ether way. I suggest everyone do some homework and looking into what the state has to offer us. Hunting is a great way to bond and also explore a small state we all know so little about.
