COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) -- The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is examining the deer season to see if it's time to make some major changes.
Wildlife Director Mark Scott tells Vermont Public Radio (http://bit.ly/TJdNf9) the department has been surveying hunters for the past 18 months. He says it's looking at when to hold a separate season for hunters who use a bow and arrow, a muzzle loader or a rifle.
He says the department has not comprehensively looked at deer hunting in the state for 40 to 50 years.
Another possible change, affecting rifle season, would reduce the number of bucks a hunter can shoot from two to one.
