Otter Creek Classic
Body: 
After a long, dull winter, opening day of trout season in Vermont is welcomed with open arms by anglers across the state. While many Vermonters follow opening-day traditions that are decades old, others are starting new traditions. In 2009, a fun catch-and-release tournament was created in the Middlebury area, and for a growing number of passionate fly fishermen, the Otter Creek Classic is fast becoming an annual rite of spring.

Vermont Big Game Trophy Club
Body: 

It's only human nature to keep records of outstanding achievements, and hunting is no exception. In 2008 the Vermont Big Game Trophy Club became the official record keeper of the top deer, moose, bear and wild turkeys in the state. Each year the club holds a Trophy Show & Awards Banquet that showcases some of the biggest big game animals ever taken in Vermont. While Vermont is seldom thought of as a top trophy-producing state, a visit to this event will open your eyes to some of the remarkable big game animals that roams the woods and fields of Green Mountain state.
