Where Hunting Happens, Conservation Happens™

Vermont State Big Game Records

Plenty of Bullwinkle-worthy moose roam the lush mountains of Vermont


In the far northwest corner of the state sits a hunter’s dream. It’s called Essex County. With roughly 6,000 residents, it’s the least populous county in both Vermont and New England. What it lacks in human residents it more than makes up for in record-book entries for Canada moose. A few whitetail deer entries round out the county. The runner-up for the county with the most entries is Orleans, which is just west of Essex. Orleans must have a robust black bear population if their entries are any indication. The state record was taken there in 2013.
