Rule Details

Rule Number: 13P020
Title: 10 V.S.A. Appendix § 2b, Wildlife Management Units
Type: Standard
Status: Adopted
Agency: Vermont Fish and Wildlife Board
Legal Authority: 10 V.S.A. §§ 4084, and 4081(f)
Summary: This proposed rule revises the Wildlife Management Units (WMUs). The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department manages select game species by geographical WMUs. WMUs are delineated based on habitat conditions, as well as climate, species densities, size, and availability of identifiable roads as boundaries. While consistency in the boundaries of WMUs is critical to between-year evaluations of species harvests, population estimates, adaptive management, as well as to the hunting public, periodic updates are warranted.
Persons Affected: Hunters, landowners, hunting equipment and supplies merchants, general store owners, lodging owners, Fish and Wildlife Department personnel, Travel and Tourism personnel, and professional foresters.
Economic Impact: There is no economic impact associated with the rule. The rule adjusts small sections of adjoining habitat units and provides for greater clarity regarding the boundaries of each WMU.
