Shooting Ranges
Body: 

It wasn't that long ago that sighting in your rifle or practicing you wing shooting skills was as simple as heading to your back yard or the nearest sand pit. For much of Vermont those days are over. Because of this the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is expanding their efforts to provide hunters and shooting sport enthusiasts with safe and environmentally responsible places to shoot.

Wenlock WMA

Wenlock Wildlife Management Area is one of the real special Wildlife Management Areas that is owned by Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department. About one-half of the nearly 2,000-acre WMA is considered deer wintering habitat and is part of the 15,000-acre Nulhegan wintering area. One of the most popular attractions at Wenlock is less than a half-mile from a parking area on  South America Pond Road. A short trail through the forest leads to a 30-acre opening, where a boardwalk across a soggy peat mat leads visitors to Moose Bog.

Timber Rattlesnakes
Body: 

During Vermont’s long, cold winters there’s no chance of encountering a snake. But they're here, hidden below the frostline until spring arrives. Vermont is home to eleven native snake species, including the only rattlesnake to call the Northeast home, the eastern timber rattlesnake. But these reclusive animals are at the northern end of their range and only a small population exists after years of human persecution and habitat loss. Today concerned conservationists are working hard to ensure Vermont's only venomous snake remains part of our natural heritage.
