    MONTPELIER ó Vermont deer hunters will get a chance this week to weigh in on hunting regulations.

    The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is holding two public hearings to evaluate the impact that hunting rules and antler point regulation have had on hunters.

    The evaluation will include surveys from hunters, three regional working groups and five public meetings to be held around the state this spring.

    The public hearings will be held at the Kehoe Conservation Camp in Castleton on Wednesday and at Spaulding High School in Barre on Thursday.

    A deer biologist will talk about the departmentís new deer management planning process at each meeting. Hunters will be asked to fill out surveys and get a chance to ask questions. Both meetings will be held from 7 to 9 p.m.
