As if you need an excuse to eat out! Here's a tasty idea: Dine at Leunig's Bistro & Cafe in downtown Burlington on Sunday, June 17, and Leunig's will donate 10 percent of sales of all meals and beverages to Vermont Public Television! On that day Leunig's will raffle off a gift certificate for a Dinner for Two on a future visit.
Already have Father's Day plans? Buy a Leunig's Community Partner discount dining card in the month of June, and Leunig's will donate 50 percent of the proceeds to VPT. The partner card entitles the purchaser to a 20% discount on food on all succeeding visits for a full year!
Don't miss this opportunity to support VPT and enjoy a fabulous meal at Leunig's!
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.
The Pine Mountain Wildlife Management Area is a very unique property. Not only for the variety of habitat but the fact that it encompasses 4 towns and two counties within the state. Pine Mountain itself along with most of the nearly 2300-acre wildlife management area is located in the town of Topsham. However substantial portions are also located in the towns of Newbury, Ryegate and Groton, and the WMA straddles the Caledonia and Orange County lines. The size and diversity of wildlife and habitat types makes Pine Mountain an attractive place to visit for a variety of reasons. It also features several access points, making it easy for visitors to enjoy the WMA year round.
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.
