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.

Shed Hunt
Body: 

Since prehistoric times, man has had a fascination with antlers. Deer and moose annually shed their antlers in the winter only to grow larger ones in the spring and summer. Every shed antler is unique, and every one holds a story about the animal that produced it and how it was found. Hunting for shed moose antlers in particular has become a popular activity in Vermont, although it can often seem like exersize in futility. Even where moose are abundant, sheds are far and few between. But some shed hunters have begun using dogs to help find these north-woods treasures.

Trap and Truck Program
Body: 

Since 2007, Vermont fisheries biologist Lenny Gerardi has been keeping records of fish that make their way up the Clyde River in Newport during the spring and fall spawning runs. Great Bay Hydro built a fish ladder at the power station below the Clyde Pond Dam as part of its re-licensing agreement. The ladder leads to a fish trap that is accessible to biologists, and it is a critical component of the Clyde River Salmon Restoration Program.

Mud Creek Wildlife Management Area
Body: 

Mud Creek is a small, sluggish stream that flows from the Canadian border south to Lake Champlain. The WMA consists primarily of a mix of emergent marsh and forested swamp, which provide habitat for a variety of waterfowl, including black ducks, wood ducks, mallards and teal, as well as other wetland birds. Below the marsh, from the dam downstream to the lake, Mud Creek also offers great paddling opportunities as well as fishing. In the fall Mud Creek offers good duck hunting, especially on its main marsh, which is regulated as a controlled hunting area. From September 1st to December 31st it is open only to waterfowl hunters with a valid permit.
