Williamstown Man Wins Vermont's Lifetime Hunting and Fishing License Lottery

A 50-year old sportsman from Williamstown, VT is the lucky winner of a Vermont lifetime hunting and fishing license.

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department held its annual License of a “Lifetime Lottery” at the December 13th meeting of the Fish and Wildlife Board in Montpelier. A lifetime hunting and fishing license is awarded to one person per year. Dan Hegarty won the license in a drawing of 329 lottery tickets.

“The License of a Lifetime Lottery gives anyone, resident or nonresident, an opportunity to win a Vermont hunting and fishing license that is good for the rest of their life,” said Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Patrick Berry. “Even if you don’t win the license, it is a good feeling to know you have contributed to fish and wildlife conservation in Vermont.”

You can enter Vermont’s License of a Lifetime Lottery by purchasing $2.00 tickets available where Vermont hunting and fishing licenses are sold and with a printable application on the Fish & Wildlife Department website ( There is no limit on the number of times you may apply during a year.
