Vermont Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Licenses for 2022 and License Gift Certificates are available on the Fish and Wildlife Department website (www.vtfishandwildlife.com).
“Our licenses for the New Year will be popular due to the increased interest we are seeing from people who want to enjoy more outdoor activities like hunting and fishing,” said Christopher Herrick, Fisheries Commissioner and the wildlife of Vermont. “Ice fishing is a lot of fun and it will soon be possible with colder weather. ”
“A license gift certificate is the perfect gift for a friend or family member who is hunting or fishing,” he added. “You can go to our website, fill out the certificate and pay for it online, and then you can print it out to present to your recipient. “
A link to a gift certificate can be found on the home page of the Vermont Fish and Wildlife website and in the permits section. The person who receives the certificate must go to the website to redeem it and purchase their licenses.
Herrick noted that the proceeds from the sale of licenses have helped pay for some of Vermont’s greatest wildlife conservation successes, including restoring game species as well as helping non-game species such as hawks. pilgrims, bald eagles, loons and ospreys. These funds are also used to manage Wildlife Management Areas which provide critical habitat for many species as well as recreational opportunities for Vermonters.
Printed copies of the “2022 Hunting and Trapping Guide and 2022 Fishing Guide” are available from licensing officers. The ministry’s website also contains links to online versions.
Existing permanent, lifetime, or five-year licenses can be updated online on January 1.
