    Vermont's Bear Hunting Season Gets Underway
    Mark Garfinkel

    Vermont's bear hunting season is getting underway and officials are reminding successful hunters to submit a bear tooth so the state can collect information on the bear population.

    The early bear season started on Sunday and runs through Nov. 15. The season for nonresident hunters using dogs starts on Sept. 15. The late season runs Nov. 16 through Nov. 24.

    A hunter may only take one bear yearly.

    The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department says hunters who take a bear are required to submit a bear tooth, which biologists will use to determine the ages of the animals.
