Rule Details

Rule Number: 13P008
Title: 10 V.S.A. Appendix § 33a Moose Permit Rule
Type: Standard
Status: Adopted
Agency: Vermont Fish and Wildlife Board
Legal Authority: 10 V.S.A. §§ 4081, 4082, and 4084
Summary: The rule establishes the number of moose permits to be issued in each Wildlife Management Unit.

Persons Affected: Hunters, landowners, hunting equipment and supply merchants, general store owners, lodging owners, Fish and Wildlife Department personnel, travel and tourism personnel, sugar makers, farmers, wildlife watchers, wildlife photographers, and professional foresters.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife estimates that the costs associated with the administration and enforce
