Turtle Research
Body: 

The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife’s mission is “the conservation of fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the people of Vermont.” This includes everything from moose to turtles. As more and more nesting habitat for turtles disappears due to lake shore development, Steve Perrin, the coordinator of the non-game and natural heritage program, has been researching ways to protect nesting habitat for several turtle species.

Goldeneye Duck Hunt
Body: 

When cold December nights begin to freeze local ponds and lakes, most waterfowl hunters are packing away their guns and digging out the ice augers. But there are a few hardy souls that brave the bitter temperatures in pursuit of goldeneyes. Also known as whistlers or ice ducks, these rugged diving ducks are the often the last migratory birds found on Lake Champlain as fall gives way to winter, and they offer some of the hottest hunting of the year.

Danville Game Supper
Body: 
Each autumn, churches, fire stations and other community centers are home to community wild game suppers. Although the number of locations putting on game suppers has decreased over the years the ones that have continued this fall tradition are more popular than ever. These friendly, informal family affairs are social events for hunters and non-hunters alike. And are subtle reminders of how important hunting and wildlife management is to the social and cultural fabric of many small Vermont communities.

Connecticut River Walleye
Body: 

When it comes to fishing in New England it’s tough to beat the opportunities that are offered by Lake Champlain. But when the ice goes out early and you’re still looking to catch fish you don’t have to wait long or look very far. On Vermont’s east coast the Connecticut River offers some of the best walleye fishing in the northeast and in the spring the fish start biting in mid March. The walleye fishery is so good on the Connecticut that even if you miss the peak by a day or two you’re still going to get into fish especially if you’re with someone who knows where to find them.

Steelhead Trout
Body: 

If you're looking for big steelhead trout in Vermont, you'll find no finer spot to cast than the eleven-mile stretch of the Willoughby River between Lake Willoughby and the Barton River. Every spring people come from miles around not only to fish, but watch them jumping upstream to reach spawning grounds. The falls at Orleans presents one of the best fish watching opportunities in Vermont if not all New England. Host Lawrence Pyne, and angler Michael Hahn, tackle the Willoughby in search of two feet of steelhead.

Beaver Baffles
Body: 

When it comes to making things out of wood no animal is more persistent and more proficient than the beaver. Beaver dams provide valuable wet land habitat for several species of fish and wildlife. But these same dams can cause a lot of damage to roads and septic systems. In this segment, we look at a unique project called the "Cooperative Beaver Baffle Demonstration Project" that uses water control structures to properly manage beaver dam water levels.

Building Wooden Kayaks
Body: 

Kayaks are challenging boats to learn how to paddle. Building them requires a whole different set of challenges. We visited the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum to look at their "Champlain Discovery" program that teaches teenagers with almost no woodworking experience how to build their own kayaks. The program culminates with a student trip on Lake Champlain in their new boats.
