    Dates clarified

    for deer seasons

    MONTPELIER ó Vermontís chief game warden said some hunters are confused about the dates for the firearms deer hunting seasons this year.

    Due to the late date of Thanksgiving, this yearís firearmsí seasons are later than most years, said Col. Dave LeCours.

    Youth weekend is Nov. 9 -10, while rifle season begins Nov. 16, both one weekend later than normal. Muzzleloader season begins Dec. 7.

    The November rifle deer season and weekend dates are set by law and revolve around Thanksgiving.

    Nearly two weeks will have elapsed between the close of archery season and youth weekend this year. Normally the gap is less than a week.
