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.

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.
