The Vermont Land Trust (VLT) announced Wednesday that the lottery for the 2023 archery hunting season at Bluffside Farm is open. Applications are due September 22. As in years past, the VLT will host archery deer hunting at Bluffside, by permission only. All hunting will be archery-only because of the Newport City ordinance banning firearms. This year, archery deer hunting will be allowed during three periods: October 14-November 10, November 11-November 26, and November 27-December 15. These will be the only dates hunting will be permitted, and all rules will apply. VLT requires that all hunters carry written permission and hunt only in the designated portions of the property, away from neighboring houses. Visitors should be mindful that hunters may be present during the designated periods and wear proper safety attire; VLT will also post reminders at the property. More information and the lottery application are available at vlt.org/hunt, or call (802) 745-6303.
