Black Bears
Body: 

Vermont’s black bear population is thriving. In fact the population is estimated to over 6,000 bears in the Green Mountain state. The growing bear population is no accident. For years the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department have been staunch protectors of critical bear habitat. However in recent years some of this habitat is being threatened. To better understand how ridgeline development impacts the black bear population a long-term study has begun on the site of a future wind project in southern Vermont.

Female Hunters
Body: 

It wasn’t that long ago that seeing a woman hunting was a rare sight. However, today females are the fastest growing demographic in the sport, and are now commonly seen in the field and hunting camps across the state. Keeping this trend alive is important to Fish and Wildlife departments across the country. But it’s also important to the women who want to share the thrills and empowerment enjoyed by the sport with their female friends and daughters. We head out fall turkey hunting with long time huntress Wendy Butler.
