The state of Vermont requires every hunter to obtain a hunting license. In addition to the regular license, for residents and non-residents, some situations may require other permits and tags. The regular licenses are for hunters above the age of 17. Younger ones may apply for a youth license.
Senior Vermont residents (65+ years) are eligible for a lifetime hunting license. People with disabilities may apply for a free license. Veterans with disabilities (service-connected) may qualify for a free license as well.
Buying a Vermont hunting license online is the easiest way. The instructions in the wildlife website are straightforward. However, you can buy from an agent if you like.
