Podunk WMA
Body: 

The Podunk Wildlife Management Area was purchased in 1963 from a local hardwood manufacturer who used the land to supply his mill with lumber. And now here we are in the summer of 2013 celebrating the 50 year ownership of this property. No one knows exactly how the Podunk wildlife area received its name. But the 926 acre parcel located in the town of Strafford is easily accessible and offers visitors plenty to see and explore.

Hudson River Stripers
Body: 

Vermont offers an abundance of fishing opportunities year round. But as New England's only land-locked state, anglers in pursuit of saltwater species need to make a long trip to the coast. If you're looking to hook into some striped bass, however, there's a great opportunity that's closer to home. A growing number of Vermonters are heading to nearby New York each spring as hundreds of thousands of sea-run stripers make their way up the Hudson River during there annual spawning run.

Bat Research
Body: 

White-nose syndrome, named for a distinctive fungal growth around the muzzles and on the wings of hibernating bats, was first identified in Vermont caves in 2008. The poorly understood disease has been associated with the death of millions of North American bats. As of 2013 five of Vermont’s six cave dwelling bat species are listed as either State endangered, threatened or Federally endangered. Each spring biologists capture bats to learn more about their habitat needs as well as keeping tabs on the health of the existing population.
