Vermont Fish and Wildlife says moose hunt successful
Preliminary statistics show that 17 moose were taken by archers during the seven-day archery season and 205 taken during the six-day rifle season.
Vermont moose biologist Cedric Alexander says the state's moose population is being managed scientifically, according to a plan developed on what he calls sound wildlife biology and input from the public.
He says hunters managed to meet the moose target in a part of the Northeast Kingdom's Essex County that was still overpopulated.
This year was Vermont's 20th modern moose hunt.
