The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department says that after 17 years of business Pauline's Quick Stop in Sheldon Springs closed on August 21 and is no longer available as a big game reporting station.
The popular country store on Route 105 has long been a favorite place for hunters to report their deer, bear and turkeys and get them weighed. Last year alone, they reported over 1,000 big game animals.
Fish & Wildlife says hunters can now report big game to any of the eight other reporting stations listed below:
Back Country Sports - St. Albans
West Enosburg Country Store - Enosburg Falls
Byam's Quick Stop - Franklin
Franklin General Store - Franklin
M&R Guns & Ammo - Highgate Center
4 C's St. Marie's Market - Swanton
Pop-A-Top Redemption - Richford
Wetherby's Quick Stop - Richford
Hunters should also keep in mind that during the upcoming youth weekend for deer, state wildlife biologists will be present at both 4 C's St. Marie's Market and the West Enosburg Country Store to collect biological information on the deer herd.
Fish & Wildlife keeps an updated list of big game reporting stations on their website (www.vtfishandwildlife.com) with a map showing their locations. Here is a direct link to the map and list: http://tinyurl.com/hf7dd73 .
